SAVE THE DATE–Learn 10…Trees

June 23 @ 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm

Botanist Dan Spada will guide participants in a beginner’s course on how to identify 10 native tree species through the use of keys, guides and their senses during a combination of lab and field sessions. The route is over moderate terrain, but participants should be prepared with sturdy shoes, sunscreen, hat, water, and bug dope.  A 10x hand lens is optional.  Participants may bring guidebooks, although guides will be provided to borrow.  Anyone interested in how to know the trees is encouraged to participate; no prior botanical training is necessary.

This trip is limited to 15 participants. Location yet to be determined, check back soon!

“Learn 10…” is a program of the NY Flora Association (NYFA) designed to help people of all ages and levels of knowledge begin learning the plants of New York.  “Learn 10…” focuses on a group of only ten plants to teach simple techniques for easily identifying any plant, including trees, shrubs, wildflowers, grasses, ferns and mosses. “Learn 10…” is a fun and interactive way to learn plants and develop a deeper appreciation of the natural world.
