Identifying trees in winter is not as daunting as it may seem! During this two hour class you'll learn the basics of tree identification (sans leaves) and gain experience using a botanical key to identify native trees. Instructor Valerie Blaine will share tips to help de-mystify winter tree identification and will emphasize observation of bark, branches, form, habit, habitat, twigs, leaf scars and buds. The session will begin indoors with a lecture/presentation. Hand-outs and reference material will be provided. During the second hour, we'll head into the woods to practice tree identification skills. Advance registration is required. Please call 630-444-3190 or e-mail to register. Visit for more information.
