The Art of Winter Tree Identification

February 8, 2020
Identifying trees in winter can be a real challenge…unless you know some tricks! Join talented duo, naturalist Emily Stone and artist Janet Moore, for this exciting class combination of art and learn the skills you need to successfully identify trees by their leafless winter twigs. Through a series of fun exercises and basic botanical illustration techniques, you will hone your observation and sketching skills to reinforce your newfound knowledge. We’ll also take a walk to visit nearby trees. No previous experience required; class is open to all ability levels and beginners are encouraged. All supplies (pencil, paper) needed are provided. Meet at the Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center in Ashland, WI from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Bring lunch, and be prepared to go outside for a walk of up to 1 mile. Space is limited. Register by February 5 by calling the NGLVC at 715-685-9983. $50 per person. Call 715-798-3890 for more info.
