Riveredge Nature Center in Saukville, located in southeastern Wisconsin, is offering a class on willow identification and management on Friday, June 23, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Expand your restoration skillsets by getting past the Genus Salix to further your understanding of willow species identification, their habitat needs and their importance for pollinators. Follow Zach Khron and Matt Smith into off-trail areas of Riveredge’s uncommon habitats to find willow populations, identify at the species level and discuss management. We will start our day in the lab to review herbarium specimens and end it in the field.
Dress for all forecasted weather. Bring your knee-high boots and a lunch!
Participants must be 18 years old or older.
The cost is $45 for Riveredge Nature Center members and $55 for non-members.
Register through Riveredge by June 22 at 11:59 p.m. Pre-registration is not required but is highly recommended.
