Intro to Tree ID

August 10 @ 10:30 am - 3:00 pm EDT

Free

Are you enthused and curious about the naturally rooted structures around you? Feeling overwhelmed by the number of different tree species living in D.C.? Join Casey Trees and the Department of Parks and Recreation as we introduce you to the trees lining our streets, backyards, parks, and schools.

During this training, you will learn how to identify trees commonly found in Washington D.C. – from the sprouting buds and leaves – to the beautiful flowers we love so much. Following the training, we will have the opportunity to practice our tree ID skills by observing trees outside.

This course is geared toward anyone who is interested in building confidence in tree identification.

Getting There
The location of the class will be released in the next couple of weeks.
