Crex to host first Botanical Foray

posted: July 23. 2018 07:22a CST

The Wisconsin State Herbarium and the Botanical Club of Wisconsin will host the first Wisconsin Botanical Foray will be Aug. 9-12 at Crex Meadows State Wildlife Area near Grantsburg. The Foray is a weekend of camping, camaraderie and collecting plants.

A Foray is different from the typical field trip or bioblitz because it’s a multi-day event and participants collect voucher specimens in order to document the vegetation of an area. All plant specimens collected during the Foray will be deposited at the Wisconsin Sate Herbarium.

Participants can pitch a tent at the group campsite or sleep in the barracks-style bunkhouse. People also can meet the group in the morning and stay for the day. To join a collecting group, meet at the “Foray Headquarters” on Friday and Saturday mornings at 8:30 a.m.
