Hello! I’m Kris Hufford and I teach ecology. I’d like to grow my skills in plant ID and I’m excited to take Biol F195 this summer. I live in Wyoming and had planned to travel to Quebec and several other places north this year. Sadly, all those travel plans are now on hold because of the virus. I took a look at USDA Plants online and was happy to see there are many species that grow in both Wyoming and Alaska. I live near the Medicine Bow National Forest and a lot of plants are in bloom right now, so this class has perfect timing.
Luckily, I can borrow a stereoscope like this one from work…and I have a macro lens for my phone on order.
