Winter Greens: Identification of plants that are green in the winter.
Learn to identify some of our evergreen plants, including ferns, fern allies, herbaceous and woody plants.For adults or older teens.
Wear warm clothes for standing around outside (we won't be moving very fast) although we will start the program inside with a quick identification and field guide lesson.
Bring (optional, but useful) a 10x hand lens, binoculars, field guides to ferns or winter trees.
