Even when trees are dormant, they have features that reveal their identity. In this lecture and workshop, examine trees’ bark, growth forms and habits, buds and ground debris to distinguish and identify some common tree species. Become more familiar with the transition trees undergo from fully dormant in midwinter to swelling leaf or flower buds before you see their recognizable mature leaves.
After the lecture on basic winter botany, walk the grounds of the Avish estate to try out your new dendrology skills.
Instructor: Andrew Hagerty
Registrants will receive an email with directions to the Avish and any further details on the workshop TWO DAYS prior to the program.
Although we are unable to refund registration fees in the case of cancellation by the purchaser, the paid registration can be transferred to another student. In this case, please notify Allison Whitehouse at firstname.lastname@example.org or 502-276-5404 with the name of who will attend in your place. Multi-event series cannot be transferred. In the event that Waterfront Botanical Gardens cancels a class for any reason (e.g. low enrollment, instructor unavailability, natural hazard, etc.), we will attempt to reschedule the class or event. If there is no reschedule, the purchaser will be issued a full refund. Refunds are issued by check only. Beargrass Canoe Tours have a different policy with no refunds under any circumstance because of river and weather volatility.
In the event of an emergency cancellation, the Gardens will contact registered students with a cancellation notice (always provide/maintain a current email address and phone number so that we may notify you of an emergency or cancellation). The Gardens will attempt to reschedule classes cancelled due to an emergency event if possible.
