Native trees, shrubs, and forbs provide an abundance of fruits, berries, and seeds that support a wide variety of wildlife throughout the winter months. Botany Committee members will give a presentation on the wealth of native plants throughout the state that produce fruits, berries, and seeds that last into winter. Using live material, we will discuss identification techniques, as well as habitat requirements and distribution in the state. We will also discuss their importance to wildlife.
