Being able to explore nature is a lot more fun if you know a little more about the trees, plants, and flowers around you. This section will provide resources to become your very own naturalist.
It’s always best when identifying plants to double check any suggested identifications with guide books or websites.
Ever wandered around your local woods and spent time looking up? Thanks to Venture Outdoors’ Volunteer Henry, you can now use easy tips and tricks to identify what it is you’re looking at. Henry runs a variety of naturalist programs through Venture Outdoors, including different plant and tree identification classes. Make sure to check our calendar and sign up for the seasonal Tree Id walks!
You don’t have to go deep into the woods to do basic identification either, we’ve held programs in Frick Park, Schenley Park, and North Park.
