Join us in exploring  the world of native spring wildflowers with experts in the subject! Attendees will learn scientific and common names for local, seasonal wildflowers, learn family recognition traits for those wildflowers, and learn the basic techniques for field identification. Come prepared to walk around outside. Bring a photo or a (legally) picked specimen if you want to talk about a specific plant. No more than 2 per person, please. See you there!

About TERM

Welcome to TERM (Techniques for Ecological Research and Management), a joint education outreach program presented by the Fort Worth Nature Center, the Botanical Research Institue of Texas, and the Fort Worth Botanic Garden.

TERM, which grew out of an identified gap in hands-on, experience-based education in the fields of plant and wildlife science, conservation, sustainability, and ecology, offers carefully designed field investigations, workshops, and classes which will enhance TERM participants' classroom education and offer an opportunity to assemble a unique set of skills. Additionally, TERM will allow participants to interact and network with professionals and students in their field of interest.
