Eco-Scavenger Hunt: Winter Twigs and Buds
February 1, 2020 –
Join Meewasin and the Saskatoon Nature Society on a hike through Beaver Creek Conservation Area looking at the different tree species and identifying them without their leaves.
The cold winter months provide a unique opportunity for people to identify trees and shrubs without leaves. Winter buds, twigs and bark are unique for each tree and shrub species.
Identifying the types of plants will help Meewasin in our valley-wide monitoring framework and future conservation efforts!
