Winter Tree ID Workshop – Cancelled
In an effort to control the spread of coronavirus and support social distancing practices recommended by the CDC, the DLC and Cary Institute have decided to cancel the Winter Tree ID Workshop. We apologize for any disappointment; please know we are acting with the health and safety of the community in mind.
We plan to offer the program again next winter and will reach out to each registrant to let you know when the date is scheduled.
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!
This event is free.
