Even without leaves, many trees are still recognizable during the winter months. In this 2-day class, learn the distinguishing characteristics for identifying more than 30 native species in the dormant season. Study branching patterns, growth habits, bark color and bud arrangements. We will be walking outdoors for the entirety of this course, so dress accordingly.
The first class, on January 31st, will cover the identification of trees in their winter habitat and the second class, on February 7th, is intended to review and practice this skill as repetition is useful for retention purposes.
