Event Description: 

Master Naturalist and fellow-tree-observer Lynn Kochiss thinks autumn is the best time to examine trees! The leaves are still out, and fall colors and fruit provide unique indicators for species. Learn leaf ID as well as bark, twigs, and buds, and you will feel like a tree expert! The first half of the program will be an indoor introduction to tree ID, after which we will wander the Discovery Trail, stopping to identify trees.  All are welcome including adults, children and families. Inclement weather CANCELS.  Please call if the program is in question.
