Outside Adventure

ID Useful Trees and Plants

$19

with Lou Falank Jr.

Calendar Jan 9, 2018 at 6:30 pm, runs for 1 week

Trees and plants provide so many of our needed tools and medicine! Explore different resources for identification and uses, such as field guides and reference books, to demystify the amazing world of plants and help you start your journey. Begin your field studies by discovering winter tree life, and end prepared to identify springís new growth, use new caretaker collecting practices, and process and store your plants. Be prepared to go outside for part of the class.

Winter Tracking

$25

with Lou Falank Jr.

Calendar Feb 6, 2018 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

We will start by covering clear print identification of tracks, use of field guides, and preparing yourself and your tools for adventures afield. We will take to the snowy outdoors on a mini-trailing expedition in the woods behind the school. Last year we followed a bobcat!
