30apr2:00 pm3:00 pmCool-Season Grasses: Which Grass is Which

Event Details

In spring, cool-season grasses emerge, grow, and flower. These grasses play an important role in providing habitat and food sources in the early spring before warm-season grasses emerge and flower in the summer. Grass identification doesn’t have to be overwhelming! By learning what characteristics to look for, you can start to demystify the bunches of grass you see on your next hike.

This program will equip participants with the tools needed to start telling apart one grass from another. Review the basics of grass identification and dive into the identification of cool-season grasses in Illinois. You’ll learn about both native and non-native grasses in Illinois, though lawn grasses are not the focus of this specific webinar.

Registration is required. Join live and ask your questions directly of our specialists, or listen to the recording anytime after the webinar on Extension’s YouTube channel. If you will need an accommodation in order to participate, please email Erin Garrett at emedvecz@illinois.edu. Early requests are strongly encouraged to allow sufficient time to meet your access needs.
