Event Description: 

Wondering how anyone could possibly identify trees in winter?  Join Master Naturalist and fellow tree-observer Lynn Kochiss for this program designed to help beginners unravel some of the mystery. The first half of the program will be held inside the museum and will focus on how to use bark, twigs, and buds as clues for winter tree ID. For the second half, we will explore the Goodwin Discovery Trail to see how many trees we can name using these clues.
