Wednesday, August 7th | 6:00pm-7:00pm | Tree Identification Walking Tour

$18.00

Join us as we explore a local park to learn how to identify trees! This introductory class will focus on common local tree species and teach students how to use a variety of tree features (leaves, bark, seeds, size, shape, etc.) to identify them in different seasons. We will cover about 0.5 to 1 mile of forested land at a leisurely pace with plenty of stops for identification practice. We will provide you with a clipboard, pen, and guide to Upstate New York trees during class to practice identifying trees, and then you can take these materials home after class as a reference for future tree identification.

Please note: Please dress appropriately for the outdoors (including footwear for hiking), and bring water, insect repellent, and a camera if you wish. This class will have a rain date of 8/12 so we ask that students please be available for both dates just in case. 

Location: 
This class will take place at Greece Canal Park, located at 241 Elmgrove Road, Greece, NY 14626. Please park and meet at Millenium Lodge.
