Saturday, Sept. 8, 10–11:30 a.m. — Recognizing Trees
A family friendly woodland exploration to learn about year round tree identification. Mark Mikolas will lead this walk and share his approach of recognizing the key characteristics of each tree species, that make them easily recognizable. This is the technique explained in his book, A Beginner’s Guide to Recognizing Trees of the Northeast.
Directions: West River Trailhead near the Marina Restaurant. Turn into the Marina Restaurant parking lot. At the river, take a right on the dirt road that runs along the river. In approximately ½ mile there will be a cornfield and a big clearing on the right with an industrial building on it. We’ll park and gather there. It is an easy level walk (also appropriate for kids) under the beautiful new I-91 bridge. Please, leave your dogs at home.
