Common trees of the Missouri River bottoms : a guide for students
Metadata[+] Show full item record
This guide was created by Missouri River Relief, a nonprofit organization dedicated to connecting people to the Missouri River. This guide was designed to be used by elementary and high school students. The goal of this guide is to provide an engaging, hands-on experience for students beginning to learn about Missouri River floodplain trees. It is not designed as a foolproof taxonomic tree ID guide. While the trees included in this guide can be found in many Missouri River floodplain forests, the list is not exhaustive for all locations. Many Missouri River floodplain trees can be very tall with leaves out of reach; as such, we formatted this guide to focus on bark providing the most direct identifier for the student. Tree bark is at student level! Because many guides focus on leaves and stems to ID trees, we understand that this is a unique approach to learning tree species.
