Winter Tree Identification

Tuesday February 23 at 12:00 PM

Online - Zoom
Guelph ON
12 noon - 1:30 PM

No leaves? No problem! In this workshop you will learn about the variety of features that are useful for winter identification of trees. From buds to bark to leaf scars, 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 deciduous tree species native to Ontario, and we will make time for some evergreens as well. Optional 'homework' assignments will encourage you to get outside and observe trees in between sessions.

Fee: $50 (plus HST) per person (includes all 3 sessions.)
