The Morton Arboretum is currently pursuing several research and conservation initiatives that focus on the genus Quercus, or oaks. But what’s so important about oaks, anyway? This self-paced, online course will explain why oaks are an important genus to protect and study; what threats oaks (and other tree species) are currently facing; and what the Arboretum is doing to protect and study oaks.
How self-paced Online Classes Work:
- To access the class, you will log into TreeLearning, the Arboretum’s online learning portal. Instructions for accessing TreeLearning will be sent to registrants by email from firstname.lastname@example.org upon registration. You have access to the course for 60 days and can complete the materials anytime.
- Complete the self-paced e-learning modules with reading material, short videos, interactive activities, and quizzes to check your understanding.
- The course will take approximately 30 minutes. The online materials do not need to be completed in one sitting.
- There will not be an instructor online with you.
