Details

Wonderful as they are, wildflowers are not the only plants out there. Mosses provide nesting material for American dippers and house those amazing little tardigrades. Horsetails descend from plants that decomposed to form the coal we need. Lycopods grow here and there but go largely unnoticed. Ferns exude an innate aesthetic appeal. Conifers define the character of our treelands. From moss gardens to spruce forests, Rocky’s other plants enrich the diversity of land and water. This field class will cover the details of diversity, methods for finding, and procedures for identifying the lesser-known plants of Rocky Mountain National Park.
