Winter Tree Identification For Beginners
Join Master Naturalist and fellow tree-observer Lynn Kochiss for this first in a series of programs designed to help beginners unravel the mysteries of tree identification. 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.
Dress for the weather. Also, the trail may be muddy or slippery, so please wear appropriate footwear. All are welcome. Inclement weather cancels.
