Event Description: 

ALL AVAILABLE SPACES FOR THIS WORKSHOP HAVE BEEN FILLED. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN BEING ADDED TO THE WAIT LIST, PLEASE CONTACT THE PRESENTER BELOW.

Join Master Naturalist and fellow tree-observer Lynn Kochiss for this first in a series designed to help beginners unravel the mysteries of tree identification.

The first half of the program will be held in the CFPA Meeting Room and will focus on how to use bark, twigs, and buds as clues for winter tree ID. For the second half, we will explore Highlawn Forest to see how many trees we can name using these clues.

Dress for the weather. Also, the trail may be muddy or slippery, so please wear appropriate footwear.

Feel free to bring binoculars and field guides if you have them, or borrow ours.

Sign-in will be in the Meeting Room on the lower level of the CFPA headquarters building. There will also be bathrooms available there.
