New at CSCH: Rocky Mountain Field Botany Certificate Course

We are excited to announce our new Rocky Mountain Field Botany and Wildcrafting Certificate Course for 2016!

The 68-hour Rocky Mountain Field Botany course is designed to provide an introduction to field botany, plant identification and botanical keying, wild-crafting ethics, sustainable harvesting techniques and basic herbal medicine-making for anyone interested in wild edible and medicinal plants. The main focus is hands-on experience, along with a variety of lecture formats and labs.

Classes meet in the late spring and summer, every other Friday for a 7-hour period over a span of 15 weeks, and the course concludes with an extended field trip. We’ll be working mainly outdoors, on private lands at various altitudes and in a variety of local ecosystems. This course includes a total of 11.5 lecture hours and 56.5 lab hours (mainly practical work with the plants themselves, keying, wild-crafting, medicine-making, and independent plant identification projects).
