DescriptionExplore the world of mosses, liverworts, and hornworts from scientific and artistic perspectives! Workshops covering the identification and illustration of bryophytes will be offered on an a la carte basis over two days. The first day will focus on bryophyte identification and will be led by Dr. Blanka Aguero from Duke University. Students will work with their own collections and herbarium specimens to master identification techniques and terminology. The second day will cover illustration, with pen and watercolor illustration workshops, and a free demonstration seminar. Participants will be guided by botanical artist Lara Call Gastinger and have living and preserved moss samples available for illustration.
