Forest Ecology


Note the "location" of each session, as we have in-person and online options. Price differences may apply. Confirmation emails contain specific class instructions.
Explore the basic principles that influence the ecological relationships of the forest ecosystem. Using the Garden grounds as a site for observation and field study, learn to understand the forces that shape our natural environment-the Northeast Woodland. Online lectures and on-site instruction provide an experience that expands your skills for the stewardship of plants.
