Calendar of Events: Winter Plant Identification

Event Date: Dec 9, 2017 9:30 AM - 2:00 PM

Learn all about winter plant identification with instructor Ruth Williams. An indoor and outdoor workshop component will be included.

Part 1: Introduction to Winter Plant Identification, In-Classroom Instruction (9:30am-11:30am)

Have you ever gazed at the frost covered branches of a tree in winter and wondered, "What kind of tree is that?" It can be tricky to identify trees without their familiar leaves, flowers, and fruits. Join us to learn how to identify dormant trees based on twigs and other clues. The course will cover 10 common landscape trees such as ash, maple, and pear at the family level.

Part 2: Winter Plant Identification, Outdoor Interpretive Hike (12-2pm)

We will look at trees from a variety of families and how to tell one genus from another. Please dress warmly.

She has conducted year-round inventories of over 100,000 urban trees over the past 7 years as a consulting arborist for the Davey Resource Group.
