Minnesota is famous for its forests, as it home to the convergence of the northern conifer forest
and the eastern deciduous forest. During this weekend course based at Osprey Wilds, students will spend time in a number of habitats and learn basic tree identification, features, patterns and forest types. Students will also learn about different forest management practices, past and present, which continue to shape Minnesota’s forests today.
This is one of the environmental education courses we offer through Hamline University’s Graduate Professional Development Program (Continuing Studies). We do also make this course available on an audit basis (not-for-credit) for those interested.
