OSU Extension Publishes New Field Guide to Shrubs of Northwest Forests
An interest and knowledge in the native plant life in your area can lead to the development of a deep relationship with one’s ecosystem, says Ed Jenson, a professor at Oregon State University’s College of Forestry. Jenson recently authored a full-color, easy-to-use field guide for identifying any of the 100 species of shrubs found in the Pacific Northwest. The book is available for just $12.00, and would surely be useful to hikers and armchair botanic-fanatics alike in Oregon, Washington, northern California, southern British Columbia, the panhandle of Idaho and even adjoining parts of western Montana. With over 500 color photographs and an illustrated glossary, this guide is sure to answer any question you may have on your next adventure.
