Birds and plants go hand in hand, but how often do you see a robin and don’t know what tree it’s perched on, or which kind of bird is foraging on those mountain ash berries? In this part classroom, part field workshop we’ll learn about plant and bird identification, then explore the TreeSong property and examine its plant diversity while we watch and listen for local birdlife. Learn to identify common native plants with an approachable and fun method to plant taxonomy. We’ll also learn what to listen and look for to identify birds, their favored layers of the forest, and how they specialize in feeding and nesting.

Suggested items to bring: 
Binoculars, notepad, pen or pencil, layered clothing, sturdy shoes. Bring your own lunch. Coffee and tea will be provided. All participants will receive a booklet on native plant identification.

Space is limited.
