Touring the Trees

October 28, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm



Join us on a fascinating journey to tour the world of trees! Our tour will include an in-depth discussion on the characteristics that make a tree a tree, and we will point out specific species that we encounter along the way. You will learn how to identify the trees we come across, and delve into their various uses, including their edible, medicinal, utilitarian, and hazardous properties.

As we examine the trees, you will have the opportunity to discover their intricate layers and composition. Our tour will not only focus on native trees, but also invasive ones, and how they affect our environment. You will gain an understanding of the important role trees play in habitat, and the crucial impact they have on our world.
