Do you want to know shrubs and trees by looking at bark, twigs and buds? Winter’s barren branches offer subtle yet observable clues to help identify plants. Join a naturalist to explore Metro’s newest nature park, Orenco Woods, and learn common Northwest plants before they leaf out.

Advanced registration is required. Class size is limited to 15.
Registration is handled through the Oregon Zoo, a service of Metro.
Pets policy: To protect plants, wildlife and people, Metro does not allow pets at most regional parks and natural areas. Pets can damage sensitive habitat and threaten wildlife the region has worked to protect. In natural areas where dogs are not allowed, people see more wildlife and get closer to it. Seeing-eye dogs or other service animals are allowed. Please bring cleanup materials.
