Calling all site plan reviewers, landscape architects, arborists, grounds staff, environmental planners and property managers! Want to spend a hands-on and dirty day excavating tree roots of all sizes growing in various conditions? Join us for a day of studying the intricacies of roots! The moderator and originator of the root appreciation day workshops is Chris Cowles, MD RPF, Senior Urban Forestry Consultant, Wetland Studies and Solutions, Inc. Make sure to dress for the weather! Bring your own tools, such as a hand trowel, garden fork, long handled or short handled pointed shovel, or brush to expose finer roots. However, you don’t have to get your hands dirty to learn! Register online. $10.
