Bare Trees and Naked Shrubs

Field Study

No leaves? No problem! We use a combination of branching patterns, bud and bark characteristics, habitat, persistent fruits, galls, and marcescent leaves to help us identify woody plants in winter. At the sanctuary, we take a close look at 15-20 common trees and shrubs in their natural habitat. The program will conclude indoors with a twig quiz.  Bring lunch and a hand lens.
