SP 17 Spring Tree Identification A

This event is no longer on sale.

Saturday April 8

1:30 PM  –  4:30 PM

When thinking of spring flowers, our attention is often turned toward the numerous herbaceous plants on the forest floor. However, when looking upward, many species of mountain trees are also blooming. In this class, we will learn about identifying trees by their flowers and bark and investigate tree pollination strategies. This class fulfills a core requirement for the Blue Ridge Naturalist Certificate.
