COURSE IS NOW OVER. Spend a beautiful Fall day at Pickering Creek Audubon Center exploring native trees of Delmarva and their fruit. We will meet and collect cones, seeds, drupes, achenes, berries, samaras, and other curiously named fruit types. In the morning, we will walk the trails of Pickering Creek encountering the fifteen most common trees on Delmarva and collect their unique seeds. In the afternoon, we’ll examine the different shapes, styles, and textures of the fruits back in the classroom. We’ll also experiment with a dichotomous fruit key to get a feel for this tool. A BYO lunch break will occur midday.
This course will take place at Pickering Creek Audubon Center
