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 the fall colors and fruit provide unique indicators for species. Add these clues to using bark, twigs, and buds, and you will feel like a tree expert. The first half of the program will be an introduction to Tree ID inside the center museum, after which we will wander the Discovery Trail, stopping often to identify trees. 

Pre-registration is required. For more information or to register: call 860-455-9534 or email  bbernard@ctwoodlands.org
