Join us for the first meeting of the year. All invited, members and non-members alike. We'll have a brief meeting then Suzanne Tuttle, our State Board VP Environmental Liaison, will present.
Identifying deciduous woody plants after leaf drop is a challenge. Suzanne will share tips for recognizing plants in the field based on bark color and patterns, bud shape, growth habits and more.
