This four-part class will revisit trees through the seasons and witness their unique characteristics with and without leaves. The group will learn how to identify species of trees with and without leaves, ID a tree by its bark, and understand which trees flower in which seasons.

Come join in the journey of the magic of trees, starting with how to identify them in the landscape and forest settings. This four-part, four-season class was created in response to popular demand.
