Monday Morning Botany Walks
with John Oliver

For decades the Webster Groves Nature Study Society has been hosting Botany Walks for those wanting to better-learn plant identification. If you’re not able to join us in person, these downloadable checklists might be the next best thing. It’s true that you’ll miss out on all the jokes and lunch, but you’ll get some of the same botanical guidance that we got. Since plants don’t move around much, you might years later be able to find and learn from the very same plants that we found and learned from.
