Identifying Trees in Winter*

February 27, 2021 1:00 pm 3:00 pm

Identify trees long after their leaves have fallen for the season. Examine an assortment of twigs, collected from our gardens and woodlands, and discover the amazing variation in buds, leaf scars, and stem textures. Then use a Winter Tree Finder (yours to keep) to identity the trees. Discover how other characteristics, such as bark, fruit and habit, can provide additional clues.  This class will take place entirely outdoors and will include a fair amount of walking.  Please come dressed for the weather.
