Tree and Shrub ID in Winter

Feb 2, 2013 9:30 - 11:30 a.m.

Beaver Creek Reserve, Wise Nature Center, S1 Cty Hwy K, Fall Creek, WI 54742
Leaves are one of the biggest clues for tree and shrub identification. But what do you do when there are no leaves? Winter offers a special time to appreciate trees and shrubs in a totally different way. This program will point out unique bud and bark characteristics of many of our native trees and shrubs, making identification possible even in winter! A PowerPoint presentation and hands-on session inside will be followed by an outdoor hike around the Reserve to apply what we learned. Some easy tips and a simple winter tree and bark key will be provided for participants to take home. Bring warm clothes and boots for the outdoor portion of the program.
Registration and full payment required by Jan. 30.
