Woody Plants in Winter

February 9 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Terradise House
$10

The leaves may have fallen off the trees, but our interest in botany isn’t dormant during the winter. Woody plants –trees, shrubs and vines – are easy to identify once you look closely.

The program…

Bob will be back in May for an encore program!   Mosses are true plants that lack the roots and internal plumbing that ferns and seed plants have. With over 400 species in Ohio, they are found in every terrestrial ecosystem, but because of their small size are largely unknown to most nature lovers. We will focus on details of the plant life cycle to see how differences in the growth forms of the cushion-forming or mat-forming leafy stage and…

We will then search Terradise for some of these arachnid neighbors using standard field work methods (visual search, litter sorting, sweep net sampling). We should not need to go very far to find a good variety of spiders.   Richard Bradley grew up with a fascination…
