Conifer identification class


Join PHA curatorial intern Thomas Murphy on Saturday, Dec. 2, 2017, from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm for an in-depth look at conifers — trees that bear seed-carrying cones. According to a press release, this special group of trees are mostly evergreens, and includes cedars, cypresses, firs, junipers, pines, and redwoods. Fun fact: The tallest, heaviest, and oldest living things on Earth are all conifers. You will leave this conifer identification class with a fuller knowledge of the characteristics of the division Pinophyta, and the ability to ID several commonly cultivated and native Island conifers by sight. No experience required.
