(MITCHELL) - Join Dale Weigel from the White River RC&D Forestry Committee on Thursday, February 8 and Saturday, February 10 to hone your skills in identifying trees in winter. People are encouraged to attend both sessions of the workshop but if someone is only able to attend one session, they will still get value from the class.

Thursday's session will be from 6 to 8 p.m. and will be held at the Spring Mill State Park Nature Center Saturday's session will also be held at Spring Mill State Park. Participants will meet in the Nature Center parking lot at 9 a.m. The Saturday session should last until about noon.

Weigel explains that in Thursday's session he will go over ways to easily tell trees apart without their leaves. As a forester with over 35 years of experience Weigel has learned many tricks to identify trees. He will bring twig samples for people to examine the buds, and twigs of common trees to compare different species.

On Saturday, Weigel will take people on a foray through the woods identifying trees and show people the differences in bark, twigs, nuts, and other characteristics. If people are unable to make the Thursday session, they are still welcome to attend on Saturday.

The cost of the workshop is $5 and pre-registration would be appreciated so there is enough handouts available. Refreshments will be provided at both sessions.

Please call Teena Ligman at 812-278-0139 or email for more information or to register for the workshop.
