The Alberta Native Plant Council is excited to present a course about native plants of Alberta at the University of Alberta from May 1-19, 2017. It is part of a series of classes given by the Edmonton Lifelong Learners Association, which presents courses for adults 50 and over, with no pre-requisites, exams or homework.
Course description #EL56 Native Plants of Alberta
  “Do you enjoy wildflowers? Used for millennia to help mankind, wildflowers provide food and medicine, can tell us the best time to plant seeds and when to expect spring allergies! Our ‘native’ plants grew in Alberta long before the settlers arrived. Edmonton native plants are tough, adapted to a climate that most resembles the plains of Siberia. Join us for entertaining talks by plant experts on different types of plants and plant habitats including the boreal forest and mountains. This course will introduce you to the plants in Alberta`s flora, and the ways in which we track them from a scientific perspective. Included is a visit to the University of Alberta plant collection in the Bio Sciences building and tips on volunteer opportunities in the plant world.” Lectures will be given by Dr. Beaubien and exciting guest lecturers.
