Washington Native Conifers
January 22, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
An identification workshop taught by Susan Ballinger.
Winter is a great season to learn to identify native conifer trees that grow in Washington’s east side Cascade Mountains. Wenatchee Naturalist Designer and Instructor Susan Ballinger has designed this hands on workshop to introduce cones, form, needle and bark patterns, and the natural history of each tree. Microscopes will be used to examine live samples of needles. You will have your own learning aids and take samples home. Lectures will focus on how each species is adapted to thrive in the unique climate of our region that includes summer drought and wildfire.
Mon, Wed 6-8 pm
Jan. 22nd and 24th
This class takes place at Wenatchee Valley College.
