Beginner Tree ID

May 13 2023 from 10:00 am 12:00 pm

$20 member / $35 nonmember
Instructor: Rafael Renteria
Ages 12 and up

There are over sixty species of trees in Houston. Which ones grow in your neighborhood? In this class we’ll learn the basics of tree ID – from tree anatomy to common tree groups and what to look for in the field. We’ll start in the classroom and, weather permitting, we’ll examine real trees on the trails to test our new skills.
