Learn how to identify trees even in the winter

February 7, 2023 01:33 PM

It is easy to identify a tree in the spring, summer or fall. But how do you identify trees in the winter?

Urbana Park District is hosting a Winter Tree ID class on February 28 at Anita Purves Nature Center. Ryan Pankau from the Illinois Extension will present the course. The class runs from 4 - 6 p.m.  

The park district will provide hot cocoa and coffee, and raffle off a field pack for three winners. The class winds up with a walk through Busey Woods where people will put their tree ID skills to use.

It costs $10 for residents and $15 for non-residents. Register by February 27. Call Anita Purves Nature Center at (217) 384-4062 to register or sign up online at  

Everyone age 12 and up are welcome. Under 15 need to be accompanied by an adult. Learn more about trees this month at Anita Purves Nature Center!
