About this event
NATIVE TREE AND SHRUB IDENTIFICATION WORKSHOPJoin Steve Roberge, Cheshire County Extension State Forestry Specialist on Friday, August 6th from 1-4 pm, for a Tree and Shrub Identification Workshop at Distant Hill Gardens and Nature Trail in Walpole and Alstead, NH. This three-hour workshop will take place in the forest, fields, and wetlands of Distant Hill. You will learn how to identify numerous native species of shrubs and trees, along with a few invasive plant species. We will be using the plant's leaves and other identification features such as bark, shape, branching patterns, smell, taste, habitat, cones, and fruits as clues. And you'll learn how plant identification is being used as a management tool to enhance the plant biodiversity of Distant Hill. This workshop will be held outdoors. Please come prepared to hike on some slightly rough terrain. Suggested Donation: $10/per adult (All donations go toward making the trails at Distant Hill more accessible.)
