Have you ever taken a hike during the wintertime and wondered about those bare branches and twigs? What plants are they? What if there are no flowers, fruits or even leaves? Join us for a virtual session that will show the characteristic twig features to look at and clues to look for, in order to distinguish and identify several of the common native woody plants in the wintertime Pacific Northwest and in the Arboretum.
About the instructor: Dr. Mandy Tu is the Plant Taxonomist & Herbarium Curator at the Hoyt Arboretum. In this position, she is responsible for collecting voucher specimens and verifying the identity of the trees within the arboretum and is often asked to identify plants by natural area managers in the Portland region. She has a B.S. in Botany from the University of Washington and a Ph.D. in Plant Biology from the University of California at Davis. Mandy has taught many plant identification courses and workshops for botanical professionals and plant enthusiasts.
This program will be held virtually over zoom. All lectures will be recorded and available to participants for 48hrs following the class. Sign up below to be added to the registration list. Instructions and the link to the Zoom meeting will be sent out to attendees before the workshop time.
