Native Plant Master   arrow

Colorado has a wealth of native plants, colorful wildflowers, grasses, shrubs and trees. Therefore, they are naturally adapted to our variable climate, soils, temperatures and elevations. The Native Plant Master Program connects people with the environment around them by instilling comprehensive knowledge of our native flora.

Courses are taught consecutively over a three week period, and are held on-trail in a variety of beautiful locations around the county. Sign up today!

In this three week course you will…

  • Learn the values and characteristics of native plant species
  • Acquire skills to identify natives plants and invasive weeds in the field using a dichotomous key
  • Become knowledgeable on the stewardship of the native ecosystem
