As you learn and practice the skill of plant identification, you may notice benefits you had not quite expected. This video outlines benefits including:
- Learning a plant’s name
- Knowing how to talk with someone about a specific plant (through knowing its scientific name)
- Feeling safe with plants in fields, woods and wetlands
- Gaining confidence in your ability to take care of yourself
- And more . . .
What benefits do you anticipate from learning to identify plants? What benefits have you already experienced from your connections with plants? Leave a comment and/or answer the two survey questions included here.
