(Previously OUT 127 Survival Plants in the Fall)

2 Credit Hours • 45 Contact Hours (Lecture/Lab Combination)

Introduces the student to the fall season genus and species recognition of wild useful plants (edible, medicinal, poisonous and tool-craft) in all life zone categories (alpine, subalpine, montane, foothill and desert) in Colorado. Other topics covered will be wilderness survival as it relates to wild useful botany, definition of a “weed”, natives vs. non-natives, parasites and saprophytes, poisoning and habitat synergy. Note: The Survival Plant series of classes can be taken in any order because each course academia is seasonal specific not nomenclature specific.
