Ecological Immersion: Native Trees and Shrubs in the Landscape

Saturday April 27, 2013. 8:30am – 12:30pm

Hitchcock Nature Center, Honey Creek, Iowa

Observing native plants in natural context informs our design, planting, and cultural practices. We will spend the morning in conversation, in the field, as we seek to understand the ecology of the native woody plant palette of the upland forest and oak savanna. 

Students should prepare for vigorous outdoor activity and should bring a water bottle and notebook. Binoculars and pocket hand lens will be useful.

Tuition is $50, $25 for full time university biology students. Contact Jack Phillips at 402.571.7460/ jackphillipsrca@gmail.com  to register by April 25th. To learn more about  the Ecological Immersion Program, click on the EIP tab above.
