Tree Care Symposium | April 5

Tree populations are being affected by changing climates and conditions. This year, we look at how climate is affecting long-range planning for forest management, and review the biomechanics of trees in this new environment.


Intermediate Botany | June 26, 27, 28

This course provides an in-depth overview of the tools and techniques used by botanists to identify plants to the species level, with a strong emphasis on family characteristics.  Attendees are exposed to concepts in plant classification, nomenclature, habitat, distribution, and of course, vegetative and reproductive characteristics – all of which can be used to help identify plants to the species level.  Instructor: Dr. Douglas A. DeBerry


Grasses, Sedges, Rushes | August 5, 6

This course is for the disgruntled multitudes who would like to gain a better understanding of grass, sedge, and rush terminology, classification, nomenclature, and most importantly, identification.  In addition, those already proficient in plant identification will find this course to be a useful refresher.   Instructor: Dr. Douglas A.
