Trees (and a few shrubs...)
We are starting our study of local trees, which will help us be familiar with the outdoors, understand how trees reflect their environment, and generally enjoy knowing a bit more about the world around us. On our upcoming hike this weekend, we will encounter several trees (and shrubs), some of which are below. Look for similarities and differences, for distinguishing characteristics of leaves, bark, fruits and the general shape or location of the tree, and for ways particular trees may tell you something about the area you are in. Click on the images for additional information about the trees (and shrubs).
