Tree Identification Primer


Sunday, May 20, 2018, 1:30pm to 3:30pm

Repeats every month on the 24 of June, 1 times


Hunnewell Building

Trees and shrubs can be challenging to identify, but as the saying goes, “…you will love only what you understand…” (Baba Dioum). So why not expand the number of trees and shrubs you become aware of and can identify? In this session, Cat Chamberlain will lead you through the Arnold Arboretum to practice using dichotomous keys, plant presses, and other tools often used in field research. This casual journey through the landscape will allow you to familiarize yourself with and appreciate the flora that surrounds you. Dress for learning in the landscape and bring a magnifier lens if you have one. Register for an additional session on Sunday, June 24.
Fee $10 member, $20 nonmember per session
