Winter Plant ID and Walk
You don’t need leaves or flowers to identify plants in winter. By observing woody plants in their skeletal form, you will begin to identify familiar plants by their bark pattern, buds, habitat and more. Join Dr. Marilyn Barker, retired UAA Professor of Botany, on a winter identification walk through the Lowenfels-Hoersting Nature Trail. This trail meanders through two miles of Boreal Forest (trail is uneven and has two sets of stairs). Dress for the weather and bring snacks, water, pen and something to take notes. This class will take place entirely outside. Meet at the front entrance to the Alaska Botanical Garden.
Class size is limited to 15 people, pre-registration is required. Call the office at 770-3692 with questions.
$5 cancellation fee applies. No refunds for requests made less than 48 hours from the date of the class (please consider your payment a donation to the Garden).
