Learn from the expert! Fred Roberts, author of "The Illustrated Guide to the Oaks of the Southern Californian Floristic Province," will help you to unravel our sometimes confusing oaks. Oaks are an important element of the California landscape, and as group, they are easily recognized. Nineteen species and five additional varieties are known to occur in Southern California, and telling them apart is not always easy. Many oaks are similar in appearance and, especially the white oaks, hybridize readily. The goal of the class is to teach participants to recognize key characteristics for separating our Southern Californian species and to recognize hybrid forms.

Admission is $120 for the public, and $100 for RSABG members.
