Entry Description

Potato Creek State Park is looking for volunteers to help develop a comprehensive plant inventory of the park. 

Volunteers will be trained in plant identification and how to preserve a voucher specimen. 

Participants must attend two days of training on Saturday, Aug. 23, and Saturday, Sept. 6, at the nature center. The training will run from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. both days. Most of the training will be in the field, teaching volunteers to identify plants. Participants will receive field guides and a hand lens, and be provided with lunch. 

This program is limited to 15 participants. Advance registration is required for the training by calling (574) 656-8186 by Aug. 10.

After volunteers are trained, they will identify plants throughout the seasons in coming years. 

The program is part of a statewide effort by the Indiana Academy of Science to inventory the state’s flora and fauna and is co-sponsored by the Friends of Potato Creek group.

Training will be provided by Orbis Environmental Consulting senior botanist Scott Namestnik.  He has more than 15 years experience in plant inventories and has written about plants in several peer-reviewed journals.
