Tree Identification with Project Learning Tree - Bringing the Outside In


Denver Botanic Gardens


Saturday, October 20, 2018 - Begin: 8:30 am


Spend a day at Denver Botanic Gardens exploring the Project Learning Tree curriculum and learning all about trees. We'll view our collection of Colorado Champion trees; learn how to identify trees using a dichotomous key and how to incorporate these skills into your classroom. Using the Project Learning Tree curriculum, we'll learn key identification traits of Colorado trees as well as non native trees that grow in our area, challenges associated with growing trees in Colorado and how you can care for trees with your students.

The material taught in this class is applicable for grades 3 – 8, with modifications included for younger and older students.

A 30 minute lunch break will be provided. You may either bring your own lunch or purchase a lunch from Offshoots Cafe. Participants should be prepared to spend time outdoors.


One-half semester hour of graduate level re-licensure credit from the Colorado School of Mines is available on the day of the class for an additional $40.
