Eric Fuselier, Environmental Scientist, to Speak on Winter Botany

23 Jan 2020 2:52 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Plant identification can be challenging, especially during the cold winter months when many species have gone dormant.  Luckily, even during this bleak time of year, plants still provide us with plenty of clues that we can use to identify what species a tree, shrub, or woody vine belongs to.  At Hobbs State Park, Eric Fuselier will teach us about these clues, and how, even during the wintertime, botany can still be a fun way to spend time outdoors.

Eric Fuselier is an Environmental Scientist in Crafton Tull's Rogers office.  He earned a Bachelor of Science in Environmental, Soil, and Water Science from the University of Arkansas, and a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from Louisiana Tech University.   Eric has extensive knowledge of wetland science, soil science, and botany.  Eric is also serving as the vice president of the Arkansas Native Plant Society (ANPS), and as the president of ANPS’s Ozark chapter.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from a professional on how and why Winter Botany can be fun and personally rewarding.
