Tree Identification for Beginners
Taught by Lisa Nett
Lisa hails from the tree filled state of Wisconsin. She studied forestry at UW-Madison, and the art of firewood stacking on the family dairy farm. She rolls through the city streets on a trusty Schwinn while sneaking peeks at the passing trees. Check out Lisa's tree-focused Tumblr, The Tree Seen, or follow her on Twitter, @lisa_nett.
Get outside and learn to identify trees by the details: bark, buds, leaves and tree form. Class will start with an overview of identification terminology and practice outside in the field. Join us for a gambol around the neighborhood and get to know some street trees!
Walks happen rain or shine and exact meeting locations will be emailed to you the day before the tour. You'll be outside for the entirety of the walk, so please be sure to dress for the weather.
This walk meets in PROSPECT PARK and exact meeting info will be sent the day before the walk.
