Trees take on a whole new dimension in winter. This is particularly true for deciduous species. Identifying and observing trees in winter can be a fun and rewarding activity. In this class, students will view trees in the landscape and woodland and learn to identify them based on silhouette, bark, twigs and other characteristics. Participants will receive the booklet “Winter Tree Finder.” This class fulfills a core requirement for the Blue Ridge Naturalist Certificate.
