Do you ever walk around Santa Fe and find yourself wondering what trees are most prevalent in our landscape? Do you wish you could have a better grasp of what trees you are seeing? Come to this tree identification class to sharpen your skills and better you abilities to recognize our most common trees. We will meet at The Harvey Cornell Park, which is located at the intersection of Galisteo and Cordova. This park offers a wide range of commonly used trees in Santa Fe landscaping in an area small enough to be walkable in the two hour class. Attendees will learn the basics of tree ID plus be given resource information to aide them in practicing tree ID henceforth.
