In this series, we will discuss the form of plant parts (morphology), anatomy, terminology, and how to apply this information in the field to improve your plant identification skills.

About the Instructors
Calyx is a certified clinical herbalist and nutritionist, field botanist, wildcrafter, activist, writer, and mother of two. She was born and raised in the mountains of central Pennsylvania. She sees the human body as an ecological microcosm, and that by reconnecting to the land we can heal the land as well as ourselves. In her practice, she integrates the long, rich history of traditional herbalism with modern scientifically sound research. Calyx is a graduate of the Colorado School of Clinical Herbalism and is the founding director of the Northern Appalachia School. Find out more at northernappalachiaschool.com.
Jaybird is a naturalist, certified permaculture designer, tracker, wilderness first responder, ecological steward, wild tender, and craftsman. The foundation of his knowledge and inspiration came from his father, who was brought up trapping, hunting, and gathering in southern Appalachia, and by his Mamaw and Papaw, who routinely walked out the door and returned with a wild salad. He’s taken that knowledge to heart and expanded upon it through his studies in botany, ecological stewardship, Traditional Ecological Knowledge, and primitive skills. By living close to nature, he believes we can reclaim our natural place in the ecosystem, tending the earth in a manner that strengthens biodiversity and creates a truly regenerative and sustainable future for all life forms.
