Forest Sleuthing: The Science of Tree Rings

Big Douglas Fir
Giant Douglas Fir
Instructor: Lyndia Hammer
Date: Saturday, July 25, 2015
Location: Deer Creek Center in Selma

This course will introduce you to dendrochronology, also known as tree ring science. Students can expect to learn tree ring basics including how trees form their annual growth rings and what these rings tell us about trees, forests, past disturbances and climate trends. We will use an incremental borer out in the field to take core samples, then mount them in the classroom. This course will include classroom presentation, lab work with core samples, as well as a field component near Deer Creek Center. Hiking will be easy to moderate, less than 2 miles round trip.
