Western North Carolina’s lush mountain forests are home to dozens of species of trees. Participants in this field-based class will use the Arboretum forest as a great learning laboratory to consider ways to identify many of the area’s tree species based on habitats, individual characteristics, including eaves, and their uses both by humans and wildlife. Participants should dress comfortably for the weather and be able to make short walks on moderate and some uphill terrain without assistance. Recommended: Participants should bring a hand lens and field journals to record observations!

This class counts as a core requirement for the BRN Certificate of Merit when taken with the two-hour online lecture.
