PNW Tree ID - An Evening in the Woods

Join us for a walk in the woods to learn all about lowland PNW trees: how to identify them, their historical significance, ethnobotany, their medicinal uses, and which ones to avoid (poisonous species). You will walk away with memorable mnemonics to help you recall names of trees based on their features, smell, flavor, and subtle quirks. 

At the end of the walk, there will be an optional Q&A period where we can sit down and make tea with the needles of common conifers. 

What to Bring: Dress for the weather, Snacks and water, Notepad and pen (optional). Registered individuals will receive details on location in an event-reminder email a few days prior to the event.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
