The Plant Identification Occupational Skills Award encourages students to master skills required to identify all of the important annuals, groundcovers, vines, trees, shrubs, and native plants used in Southern California landscapes. Award holders will be able to make recommendations for the incorporation of these species into the landscape based on flower color, time of flowering, height, spread, fruit production, and known problems. This skill set will support students to gain entry level employment in nurseries (both wholesale and retail), tree care companies, landscape maintenance companies, and more.
