Learn how to identify some of the common trees and shrubs of the forests, fields, and wetlands of Distant Hill Gardens in winter. It’s a great way to find out more about the native plants that grow here and their importance to the winter survival of many of our wildlife species.

Steve Roberge, Forest Resource Specialist with Cheshire County Extension, will lead the workshop and will be discussing the key things to look for when attempting to identify woody plants in winter – things such as overall form, bark, twig features, leaf scars, and fruit remnants.

It will begin with a short indoor presentation, then the workshop will move outdoors. Please bring footwear suitable for varying snow and/or ice conditions.
