Winter Tree Identification

December 8, 2021 | 1-3 p.m. | Schmeeckle Reserve
Instructors: Rich Hauer, Jessica Tomaszewski, and Les Werner

Identifying trees without their leaves can be difficult. However, knowing how to use their twigs, buds, and bark can make it a lot easier. In this program, we will cover the basics of winter tree identification through a combination of presentations, in-field tree identification, and twig identification practice. Join us as we explore the winter beauty of Schmeeckle's trees and learn how to:

  • use dichotomous keys,
  • apply key terminology to identify trees and twigs, and
  • identify trees by bark, twig, and buds.
A tentative agenda is available HERE.

Target Audience
This workshop is designed for nature enthusiasts of all skill levels.
