Fun with Twigs: Plant ID in the Winter
February 26 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
This event is hosted by Wenatchee River Institute
Saturday, February 26th 10am-12pm @ WRI
During the winter months, deciduous woody shrubs and trees without flowers and leaves still hold clues to their identity. Join Washington Native Plant Society members for a stroll along the Wenatchee River to learn some new identification skills. We will observe and differentiate maple, dogwood, snowberry, cottonwood, and other woody shrubs and trees. Immerse yourself in twig terminology as you examine leaf scars, bud scales and other anatomical features. The walk will begin at Wenatchee River Institute for a basic introduction to twig anatomy/terminology and instructions on using a dichotomous key.
This is a FREE workshop, but registration is still required: https://wenatcheeriverinstitute.org/event-calendar.html/event/2022/02/26/fun-with-twigs-plant-id-in-the-winter/362315
