New Field Guide for Novice Naturalists

| Leave a comment

The environmental science education team is excited to announce the new Prairies & Potholes field guide to selected native species commonly found in Minnesota prairie and wetland ecosystems. Illustrations and descriptive text help novice naturalists identify representative grasses, soils, woody plants, seasonal flowers, mammals, insects, aquatic and upland birds, wetland plants, fish, reptiles and amphibians.

The field guide provides an excellent introduction to the prairie biome for Master Naturalists, Master Gardeners, teachers, youth, nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts. Orders can be made through the Extension Store for $4.95 per copy.
