Meet the trees that give this landscape its distinct beauty. Whether you know them by sight or all you see is "green,” come learn to identify trees along with their stories and how they interact with the ecosystem. We'll pass through several distinct forest communities and learn why some trees grow where they do. No prior knowledge assumed for this downhill hike. We'll gather for an interactive exercise on plant anatomy and identification, using fresh samples. In the field, we'll hike at a gentle pace, apply new knowledge, and learn about the special interconnections of each tree type with the environment around it.
