No leaves? No problem! In this hands-on, interactive workshop you will learn about the variety of tree features that are useful for identifying trees in winter. From buds and twigs to leaf scars and bark, we will take an in-depth look at the surprisingly distinctive characteristics that let us unlock the identities of trees in their dormant season. We will focus on native Ontario tree species, with some common introduced species included as well. Part of the session will be held outdoors, so be sure to dress for the weather! Each registrant that attends the workshop will receive a copy of The Arboretum’s Tree Bud Biodiversity Sheet. Fee: $94 (plus HST) per person if you register by the early bird deadline of February 7, 2024. After February 7 the fee is $104 plus HST. * Please note that we are also offering a virtual Winter Tree ID course on Wednesdays, January 10, 17, 24, and 31, 2024. The virtual and in-person programs are stand-alone, independent programs, but if you are very keen you may enjoy taking both!
