Day 1: Plants

Words

Get to know your plant identification tools today—including the guides to the ferns, wildflowers, and trees. Usually fern allies such as club mosses and horsetails will be included in the ferns. Shrubs will often be included with the trees, or else along with vines with the wildflowers. Become familiar with some of the major groups of plants and their distinguishing features.
