Why GVSU Plants?
- Plants provide breathable air, food, medicine, and beauty!
- Learning the plants you encounter is fun!
There are lots of very good resources to learn plants (see the Resources page for details), this webpage is not aiming to replace those. Instead, it is intended for people who are eager to learn more about plants in small, easy-to-digest chunks by either focusing on a place or a plant type. The lists are not comprehensive, instead, they are focused on the common plants and the plants of special interest. The hope is you will use the pages to learn more about the plants of West Michigan.
