Can you tell a fir from a pine? An ash from a maple? Tree blindness, especially conifer confusion, is a common malady. This course will cure you. There are numerous examples of native Oregon trees, including some very old and large conifers at Riverside Park in Grants Pass. You will learn how to use all of your senses to identify trees by their bark, leaves, flowers and seeds plus interesting stories about their history and uses. The park offers easy parking, plenty of benches and clean restrooms. Bring an afternoon snack and water. Appropriate for families with young children as well as older adults, although walking on uneven ground may be involved. Trees to Know in Oregon by Ed Jensen will be used as a field guide. It is available at OSU Extension Offices.

Meeting Place: Travilian Pavilion
