When we think of flowers in the spring, our attention often is turned towards the numerous showy flowers found on herbaceous plants on the forest floor. If we look upwards, however, we learn to notice the many species of mountain trees that also begin blooming at this time of the year as well. Naturalist Carlton Burke leads this two-hour field experience for practice identifying trees and woody shrubs by their blooms, buds and bark this time of year, and investigating tree structures and pollination strategies.
