Event Date: Dec 2, 2017 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Saturday, December 2
9am-12 pm
$15/member, $20/non-member

It's very common for people to use the term ‘evergreen’ to refer to only conifers, but this distinction isn't exactly accurate. Many genera of broadleaves, too, have a species that have opted to retain their leaves year-round. Oaks, madrones, magnolias, hollies, and others all have examples of evergreen species. In this course, we're going to focus on identification of some of these broadleaf evergreen species, and discuss how this evolutionary strategy works and why these trees are becoming more and more important in the face of climate change and urbanization.

About the instructor: Casey Clapp is an avid plant enthusiast and Certified Arborist who specializes in tree identification, risk and health assessment, and diagnostics.
