Is a Douglas fir a true fir tree?  Do you know a Western red cedar when you walk by it on the trails?   Join our instructor Ken Denniston and expand your knowledge of native conifers. Ken will help you identify the local conifers of northwest Oregon as you learn easy ways to distinguish each conifer species by examining bark, cones, and needles. Class size is limited and pre-registration is required.

About the instructor: Ken Denniston has been hiking the forests of Oregon for over 50 years. During that time, he has learned how to identify each species of our native conifers. He has completed the Oregon Master Naturalist Program and leads many public and private tours for Hoyt Arboretum.
