Join the DLC’s Ecologist Julie Hart and Cary Institute Wildlife Biologist Mike Fargione for a tree identification workshop and walk on Saturday, March 14th. The program will be offered at two times: 10 am – 12 pm or 1:30 to 3:30 pm.
Wise forest stewardship requires that landowners familiarize themselves with the woody plants on their property. Participants will learn to recognize native and invasive trees and shrubs by their shape, bark patterns, twigs, fruits, and seeds. They will also gain experience using identification keys.
There will be an indoor workshop followed by a walk. Wear boots and appropriate clothing. Each person will receive a Winter Tree Finder field guide and a DLC lighted magnifier.
The program will begin at the main campus, 2801 Sharon Turnpike (Rte. 44) in Millbrook, New York. Registration is required. Space is limited so sign up early!
