Library Spotlight - “Peterson Field Guides: Western Trees”
If you've ever wondered what type of tree that is along the side of the road, a great place to start is with a field guide. Peterson Field Guides are some of the best known and they cover a variety of flora and fauna across the United States. Field guides focus on differentiating factors between species and include specific images to help with identification and include descriptions of the species and its range. Stop by the Arboretum Library to check out a field guide for trees or plants or wildflowers or insects before your next hike through the hills, your neighborhood or the Arboretum itself.
