Webinar: The American Oaks - Diversity, Ecology, and Identification ($)
12:30 – 1:30 p.m.
This is an online event
Join Tim Boland to learn about the great diversity of oaks found throughout North America and locally in New England. He will paint a picture of the genus Quercus, including its fascinating evolutionary history and moving forward in time will address challenges posed by climate change.
He will also illuminate the deep connection oaks have to humanity across the world, and explain why they are widely considered to be the ecological glue that holds plant communities together.
Familiarity with oaks is vital for anyone looking to garden for biodiversity. Tim will show us how to identify most of the twelve species native to New England and offer guidance on species selection, installation, and maintenance for establishing oak trees in our managed landscapes.
$10 for non-members of the Ecological Landscape Alliance.
