Winter Botany

Identification of deciduous trees and shrubs in the summertime is a piece of cake for most naturalists, avid gardeners, environmental professionals, or outdoor enthusiasts. But what happens in the wintertime when leaves, flowers, and fruits are no longer at our disposal? Woody plants are every bit as recognizable in winter as they are in summer. This course reveals all of the characteristics that woody plants leave behind during the winter months. Learn how to use this information to identify woody plants to the species level. The Winter Botany curriculum focuses on use of dichotomous keys and familiarizing attendees with the technical terminology surrounding identification of plants in winter.

This class is presented via Zoom with coursework shared via Google Classroom. Lecture, virtual lab, and independent field practicum.
