The Northwest is home to the greatest conifer forests on earth. They are extensive, the trees immense, and the species diverse. Eighteen are found in the Mt. Hood National Forest alone. Each is distinctive in its appearance, its ecology, and its usefulness!
Dr. Swenson will conduct a half-day lab (morning of October 11th) using the facilities of Multnomah University, in which you will learn to identify each confer species using a dichotomous key and dissecting microscope. On the following day (October 12th), we will car caravan into the Mt. Hood National Forest where you will practice your appreciation for the Creator's beautiful and useful world of trees!
