UT Gardens class: Winter Tree Identification Class 1 and 2

  • November 21, 2020

Category: Classes & workshops and Science & nature

Class 1: November 21st from 9am-11am
Class 2: January 23rd from 9am-11am

Do you love trees? Do you love them so much that you’ve wished you could identify them during the dead of winter? Look no further – we have a class for you! Join Alice Kimbrell, UT Gardens Volunteer Coordinator, Horticulturist and avid tree lover as she takes you through the garden in winter. In this class, we will learn the basic anatomy of trees and will look at different ways to identify several plant species during their dormancy with their bark, fruit, buds and more. You’ll be surprised how much you can identify during winter! Be sure to wear comfy walking shoes and weather appropriate clothing as these plant walks are entirely outside.

It is recommended to enroll in both tree identification courses for the best experience, though you may opt to just register for one of the classes.

Only Class 1 on November 21st: Garden member $20.00/ Nonmember $25.00
