Forest Stewardship Workshop:
Tree / Plant Identification
October 11, 2012; 9:00 am – 3:00 pm ET
3540 East University Avenue, Gainesville, FL 32641
This program will give landowners an opportunity to learn to identify some of the tree, shrub and herbaceous species on their forest properties. We’ll focus mostly on sandhill and flatwoods species, identifying live specimens in the field. We will also learn about how some of these plants are used by wildlife and/or the role they play within the larger plant community and habitat. This will be a walking event so please wear appropriate clothing and footwear. Ticks may be plentiful so long pants and sleeves are strongly suggested. A water cooler is on site – bring a water bottle if you wish to take water to the field. Tick repellent will be available.
