Learn 10…Trees

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

Free

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 program is limited to 15 participants. Please pre-register using the online form (link at the top of the page).

“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.

PLEASE NOTE: the venue for this workshop has changed. It will take place at Mohican Farm, 7207 State Highway 80, Cooperstown.

Sponsored by New York Central Mutual.
