And you thought all trees look alike in winter! Learn to see both the obvious as well as the more subtle characteristics that make winter identification interesting. The class will begin indoors with a lecture introducing essential identification techniques and a review of important winter characteristics such as bud morphology, habit, leaf and bundle scars, bark, and fruit. The group will then move outside for a stroll through the Arboretum to put your knowledge to work. Meet at the Morris Arboretum’s Visitor Center at 100 E Northwestern Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19118. Dress for the weather.
With Dr. Tim Block, John J. Willaman Director of Botany at Morris Arboretum.
