What are trees good for? Lots of things, including shade, providing air, harboring houses for various wildlife, and even in death, they are still a vital part to our ecosystem.
We will use the outdoor classroom at Prairie Ridge to take a close look at how to properly age a tree, the difference between the terms coniferous and evergreen, and basic tree identification using the leaves, bark, and shape of a tree. Then, using the expansive variety of native trees in the arboretum at Prairie Ridge, we will put what we learned into practice.
