Audubon at Home: Native Tree Identification
Fall is an excellent time to learn to identify native trees by their leaves, fall color, buds, fruits, branch and bark patterns, and site and soil preferences. The class will be organized around the beautifully illustrated new book, Trees of Alabama.
In this class offered by Alabama Audubon, you will be introduced to the common and Latin names and identifying characters of over sixty prevalent native tree species from original photographs taken in the last year by the instructors, Henry Hughes and Michelle Blackwood.
The approximate class schedule will be:
Day 1: Gymnosperm Families: Cypress (juniper, bald-cypress) and Pine (pines, hemlock)
Day 2: Angiosperm Families: Sweetgum, Custard-Apple, Holly, Ginseng, Birch, Catalpa, Hop, Dogwood,
Pre-registration is required by 12 p.m. CDT Monday, October 18th, and space is limited. Visit https://alaudubon.org/event/2021-10-19/ for more information and to register.
