Stewardship Workshop: Flowering Dogwood

Dogwood_Jane_Bowles.jpgEastern Flowering Dogwood (Cornus florida), with it's beautiful white flowers, is an iconic Carolinian species. Unfortunately this small tree is under threat from a fungus called Dogwood Anthracnose, and is currently listed as Endangered in Ontario.

On May 11th join TTLT for a workshop and help us inventory and monitor Eastern Flowering Dogwood at Beryl Ivey Woods. The event starts with an introductory presentation followed by a field trip to Beryl Ivey Woods. Transportation will be provided to and from the field site.

What to bring

Come prepared for an outdoor, off-trail experience. TTLT will provide all necessary equipment.

  • Rubber boots and long pants (no shorts!) are a must. Long sleeves are recommended as you will be walking through shrubs. This event will take place rain or shine so come dressed for the weather.
  • Bring your lunch and plenty of water and snacks.
  • Bring your field guides, binoculars, and camera, if you have them. Beryl Ivey Woods is a beautiful spot for birding and botany.
