Discover Wildflowers Program | Offered Virtually

It is easy to find beautiful wildflowers blooming along the trail when you are hiking on Douglas County Open Spaces or in other wild places in Colorado. Many of us may know common names of some of these flowers already. Would you like to begin to learn how to identify others?

If so, join us for this 3-session Discover Wildflowers class which will give you an introduction to plant identification. The first session will cover some basic botany information that is essential to know if you wish to learn to recognize plant families and identify wildflowers. The second session will help you learn the basic patterns of several of the common plant families found in Douglas County, as well as showing you examples of plants in each family. The third session will take you on a virtual wildflower hike through Dawson Butte Open Space. Through photographs and descriptions of the flowers that bloom there in June, you will become familiar with the wildflower species that you can discover for yourself if you choose to do so. At the end of the class, we will give you a list of plants as well as a flower sheet with photos of many of them that you can print at home. You will be able to go on a trip of wildflower discovery by yourself or with a family member or friend!

Space is limited. The Discover Wildflowers program is free, but a $30 per person donation to DLC is suggested due to the extensive classroom content being provided throughout the three day class and so that we may continue to offer quality programs such as this.

Classes will be offered over Zoom. You will receive the link upon registration. Class dates and times are:

Tuesday, June 9 from 6:30-8:30pm
Thursday, June 11 from 6:30-8:30pm,
Saturday, June 13 from 9-11am.
Please be available for all 3 dates when you register.
