Add a new dimension to your winter outings when you join local plant experts to learn the secrets to identifying local shrubs and trees without their leaves. “Winter Twig Identification” is a 2.5-hour field class held at a West Olympia-area nature trail on Sunday, January 22. Please visith this link to register: http://wintertwig2012.eventbrite.com
- 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. or
- 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
The class costs $5, which will be paid at the event. Participants will recieve a handout and have the opportunity to purchase the Winter in the Woods book.
The nature trail requires that vehicles display the Discover Pass, or participants can offer volunteer service at the trail in exchagne for parking during the class. More information about obtaining a Discover Pass can be found at this site: http://discoverpass.wa/gov/
If you are unable to purchase a Discover Pass and want to volunteer in exchange for a pass, please let us know in advance. Participants in the morning class can volunteer from about 12:30 to 1:30, and those in the afternoon class can volunteer from about 11:30 to 12:30.
Participants in the winter twig workshops will be advised to dress warmly, as we walk very slowly while learning the plants. Extra warm footwear, mittens, hats, and lots of layes are a must to stay comfortable! Full information will be sent to you upon registration, about a week prior to the workshop.
