Examining leaves is a common practice for identifying trees and shrubs, but what about when deciduous plants lose those leaves in winter? Each species has its own unique growth habits, bark, twigs, buds and leaf scars that provide clues to solving the mystery. Join plant ecologist Suzanne Tuttle as she shows you the tricks of the trade for identifying deciduous woody plants after leaf drop.  Suzanne was the manager of the Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge from 2005 to 2016. Before that she'd worked at the center in other capacities since 1993.

Suzanne's indoor presentation will be followed Sat., Feb. 9, 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m., by a field trip focused on this topic at the Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge. The field trip requires pre-registration here

Meet, greet and snacks at 6:15
Chapter meeting at 6:30
