What you'll learn in this botany class:

Get outside and learn to identify trees by the details: bark, buds, leaves and tree form. Class will start with an overview of identification terminology and practice outside in the field. Join us for a gambol around the neighborhood and get to know some street trees!

Walks happen rain or shine and exact meeting locations will be emailed to you the day before the tour. You'll be outside for the entirety of the walk, so please be sure to dress for the weather. 

Exact meeting instructions will be sent the day before the walk.

Still have questions? Ask the community.

Refund Policy
If you're looking for a refund or class credit, you need to back out of the class a full week before it starts. (No exceptions!) We know it's draconian, but since we aren't charging an arm and a leg and have to buy all our materials in advance, it's kinda hard to deal with last-minute bailings.

We also can't transfer registrations to a future session of the class. Sorry!

Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around and see if any of your friends want the spot. We can't give you a refund less than a week out, even if there's a wait list for the class. 

Regarding bad weather, we generally only cancel classes if the subway system stops running. If traveling during snowstorms might be an issue for you, please take this into account before registering for a class.

Question from anonymous
Hello, can you tell me how long the walk is? Also, can I bring my dog?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! Brooklyn Brainery generally discourages dogs, as they wouldn't want to make anyone uncomfortable. The walk moves very slowly, the length varies for different locations. Hope this helps!
