North Carolina’s lush mountain forests are home to dozens of species of trees. In this class students will learn how to identify many of these species based on their habitat preferences, individual characteristics and their uses both by humans and wildlife. This class will start indoors with a lecture and then move outside for an easy hike. Students should dress and wear shoes for the hike portion of the class.
