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.
This program is offered by the New York Flora Association jointly with the Leatherstocking Botanical Society.
