The cold winter months provide an unique opportunity for people to identify trees and shrubs without leaves.  Winter buds, twigs and bark are unique for each tree and shrub species.  The field trip will be a hike through the Beaver Creek valley looking at the different tree species and identifying them without their leaves.

Meet by the grain elevator at the Western Development Museum’s parking lot on Lorne Ave.

Bus: Route 1 Exhibition departs downtown terminal at 12:31 PM and arrives on Lorne Avenue next to museum about 12:50 PM.
