Saturday, September 14, 2019, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Meet two of the authors of the new Field Guide to Grasses of Oregon and
Washington, Cindy Roché and Bob Korfhage, at the Book and Game in Walla Walla. $ 35
This essential reference to grasses of our region, combines attributes of a flora and a field guide. Like a flora,
it includes all 376 taxa of grasses in Oregon and Washington (not including ornamentals found only in
gardens). But in addition to identification keys, full descriptions, and distribution maps, the book is fully
illustrated with color photos of habit, habitat, inflorescences and details of spikelets, florets, and ligules. Of
interest to botanists, soil scientists, master gardeners, ranchers and farmers as well as those working to restore
native plant habitats, control weedy grasses, manage wetlands, or just curious about the grasses we see on our
hikes. Roche and Korfhage are members of the Carex Working Group – Oregon botanists fascinated by sedges,
grasses, willows, and other difficult-to-identify plant groups.
Books will be available for purchase and you can get your copy signed by the authors, both of whom have
roots in Walla Walla. Location: Book and Game, 38 E Main St # 101, Walla Walla, WA
