Free Event: Winter Tree Identification Workshop

March 3, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

It is fairly easy to identify many trees by their leaves but once the leaves have fallen, it can be challenging. This workshop starts indoors with a brief introduction to plant identification using keys. Then we will head outside to look at deciduous, native trees while they are dormant. Observing trees as a whole, with their unique bark and branching patterns, twigs, buds, any leftover fruit and persistent leaves, helps them become recognizable – even during the winter.

Instructor: Mary Villa, Arboretum Curator
Meet in New London Hall, Classroom 101.
Free, registration suggested, call 860-439-5020 or email arbor@conncoll.edu
