This spring, this class will be offered as a blended program: half of the class will be offered as a pre-recorded lecture and the other half will be offered face-to-face using social distancing, outdoors at the North Carolina Botanical Garden.
This short course is perfect for those just beginning their study of trees or for recent transplants to the NC Piedmont who want to identify the common deciduous trees in their backyard gardens and neighborhoods. Students spend time outdoors, walking in the Garden or on the Piedmont Nature Trails, learning about common trees, how to identify them, and understanding why they grow where they do.
