Interested in identifying common trees and shrubs in our region? This workshop invites novices through intermediates to join the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens and UW experts to learn about common trees and shrubs in Wyoming. We’ll discuss the basics of plant identification, and then work with fresh plant collections and dried specimens to distinguish different evergreen and deciduous shrubs and trees you might find on walks at forest and rangeland sites, and in your own backyard. If weather and time permit, we’ll take a walking tour around the Botanic Gardens to see trees and shrubs on site.

Instructors: Ernie Nelson (Rocky Mountain Herbarium), Kristina Hufford (UW Ecosystem Science and Management and Extension), Jenny Thompson (Barnyards & Backyards) and Dorothy Tuthill (UW Biodiversity Institute)

No previous botany or plant ID experience is required.
