The gorgeous light and colorful leaves of another autumn provide the backdrop for an embarrassment of riches at Bates.

BIES 271 - Dendrology and the Natural History of Trees/LabIn this field-based course, students engage in the scientific study of the natural history and identification of trees and important shrubs native to New England, and some commonly planted non-native trees. Topics include the anatomy, function, taxonomy, biology, and uses of trees. Lecture topics support weekly outdoor laboratories, which include trips to such field sites as the Saco Heath, Thorncrag Bird Sanctuary, and Wolfe's Neck State Park. Study of the woody flora of New England serves as a foundation for further work in biology, environmental studies, conservation, or related fields. ___________________________Closeups of two students in particular: Olivia LaMarche '20 of Lynnfield, Mass., in purple with long blonde hair and environmental studies major Grace Warder ’20 of New York City with green vest and long brown hair.Hugget took students for an inspection of trees in the neighborhood surrounding Bates on the Mountain Avenue side of Campus Avenue, quizzing them along the way about the tree species they encountered. They entered their answers on a slip of paper, which he then collected from them at the end of their walk. Examples of the trees were : catalpa, butternut, red pine, sugar maple and ginkgo.
