Forest Stewardship Field Day: Tree / Plant Identification
October 6, 2016; 9:00 am – 3:00 pm ET
3540 East University Avenue, Gainesville, FL 32641
Join us to learn some strategies to help you identify trees, shrubs and herbaceous species. We will cover some basic skills and put them to work in woods, identifying a sample of sandhill, flatwoods and swamp species in the field. You 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.
