The Botanical Gardens at Asheville, Butler Room & Gardens

Program will be co-taught by Carol Parks, a professional gardener and long-time member of the Buncombe County Extension Master Gardener Volunteers, and Rebecca Priddy, a Certified Naturalist and blog author ofA Year with the Trees.  We will look at 6-8 trees along the Gardens’ trails and discuss in depth features that help identify each one.

At each tree, we will record in words and with drawings notable characteristics of the tree.  Students should bring: field notebook or journal, pens or pencils. Optional: portable folding stool, hand lens or magnifying glass, binoculars and camera.

This program is part one of a 4-series class. We encourage you to sign up for all four, but if you can not take all of them, please join us for those that fit your schedule. After the formal class ends, you may return to trees we've discussed and add to your journal.  (Dates of other classes in series:  May 26, August 4, and October 20)Cost: BGA members: $10, Nonmembers: $15
