Class Details: Winter Botany
Recognizing trees by their bark is very helpful, particularly here in the Northeast. Bark is always present and is a great aid in identifying trees. Join Cornell Botanic Gardens’ field botanist, Robert Wesley, for an engaging winter walk that will cover the basics of identifying trees by their bark, including color, texture, pattern, and the processes that gives rise to these traits. We will also cover fruit, twigs, branching patterns, and other characteristics to aid in species identification. Dress for the weather and be prepared to walk through snow. Pre-Registration is required.
