This course takes place over 5 Wednesdays from September 15 to October 13, 2021.
Please note the prerequisites below.
This 5 week course is designed for gardeners who wish to extend their knowledge of trees and shrubs in Calgary.
During the first 4 weeks, 25–30 specimens will be studied. Some of these will be specimens less commonly grown in Calgary. Reference to genera studied in previous Woody ID courses may be made.
The focus of this specific course will include correct nomenclature and identification of specimens as well as discussion regarding the suitability of the specimen in Calgary conditions.
Each week there will be an in-class presentation as well as walks outdoors, so participants should dress appropriately for the prevailing weather. Additional, optional walks will be arranged depending on student interest and volunteer availability.
During the fifth class, participants will make a short presentation about a related tree or shrub of interest to them. Details regarding the presentation will be discussed on the first day of class.
Prerequisites: completion of the Intro to Woody ID AND one of the following: Perennial ID, Woody ID 2 or the full Master Gardener program.
