If you’ve ever wondered which trees are located in your woodland or in your backyard, this is the class for you. In this workshop, you will be introduced to a straightforward process that will aid you in identifying 88 of Ohio’s tree species.
The morning session will spotlight tree identification with a focus on leaf characteristics. A variety of samples will be available for you to get hands on experience learning to use a simple key which was developed specifically for use in “Name That Tree”. After lunch it’s off to Adams Lake State Park where you spend the afternoon exploring the wide variety of trees found there.
Co-sponsored by Adams County Extension, The Ohio Valley EERA and the George W. Broughton Endowment, the program begins at 9 a.m. at the Ohio Valley Career and Technical Center, 175 Lloyd Road and concludes at Adams Lake State Park, 14633 S.R. 41.
