A local plant expert will lead a walk on a west Olympia-area nature trail, helping participants learn to discover the subtle beauty and how to identifying 25 local shrubs and trees without their leaves. The class is offered only one day a year.

The class costs $5. Participants will receive a handout and have the opportunity to purchase the book “Winter in the Woods.”
