OSHR 1881 - At Home in the Trees

  • Noncredit

This course is offered through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Colorado State University. You must be a member of Osher to enroll in this course.

A tree, viewed with fresh eyes and sharper perspective, assumes the identity of a home as if it were a hotel where animals, fungi, and even other plants can check in to live their lives. Some wildlife comes and goes; some wildlife comes and stays; always they share in common that the tree is vital to their individual lives and well-being. Through the tree, they interconnect as community.

This class will develop those fresh eyes and that sharper perspective of the trees in our lives. When the stories are told, a walk in the woods will never be the same!

Please Note: No Class September 22.

Noncredit courses do not produce academic credit nor appear on a Colorado State University academic transcript.
