Have you ever tried to identify different plants in gardens, landscapes or fields? Some plant material is easier to identify than others.

Plan to attend the “Characteristics of Common Plant Families” program at 7 p.m. CT, Tuesday, Jan. 18, at the Veterinary Science building on the campus of the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture in Curtis.

This program is designed to help learners learn more about:

• Major plant families represented in landscapes in west central Nebraska.

• Physical and cultural characteristics to help identify popular plant material in each plant family.

• Connect which plant family’s characteristics are good for different landscaping uses and locations.

• Help gardeners learn more about the different families, and how to utilize them in the home or public landscape.
