ONSITE | Thursday, May 2, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.

From the rare and fragrant Fraser fir of the highest elevations to the common white pine found throughout our region, the beautiful evergreen members of Pinaceae enrich our Appalachian Mountains. The class covers human uses of the pine family and their natural importance in our ecosystems. Also covered are species identification and natural history. The class begins indoors with lecture and discussion then moves outdoors for practice identifying native pines at the Arboretum.
