Requirements

November:
Getting Familiar with Forested Wetlands
Come and learn the basics of wetland delineation as tailored to forested wetlands. We will discuss the types of forested wetlands within the Preserves, and their native associates. The outdoor component for this class will delve into hydric soils and hydrology indicators.

December:
Winter Tree and Shrub ID
Winter is a great time for brush removal and restoration work- and for improving your woody plant id skills! This class will focus on how to identify native and non-native trees and shrubs by taking a closer look at the bark, seeds, and buds. The second portion of this class will be held outside as we practice tricks to identify trees & shrubs without their leaves.
