Bark: Get to Know Your Trees

October 10, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

OCT 10-11, 2014   Bark: Get to Know Your Trees.   Presented by Michael Wojtech – Naturalist, Writer, and author of Bark: A Field Guide to Trees of the Northeast.

The traits typically used to describe trees—leaves, twigs, and buds—are often hard to see or seasonally absent. Join Michael for an exploration of bark, which is always visible, in any season. As you hone your perceptive abilities you will learn about a system for identifying tree species by their bark, and discover why such a variety of bark characteristics exist. Why do some species have smooth bark, while on others it is thick and broken? Why does bark peel? Open to naturalists at all levels of experience.

Held at the Whallonsburg Grange.  Co-sponsored by the Northeast Wilderness Trust.

10/10 Friday evening presentation (7-9 p.m.) $10 Suggested Donation. No reservation necessary.

10/11 Saturday field class (9 am. -1 p.m) $45  per participant.  Pre-registration is required and space will be limited–contact Elizabeth Lee to reserve your place.
