Read the Trees

Sunday, February 19, 2017 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Location: Park Trails
Description: The trees have a lot to tell us, but they don't make a sound. To understand them, we have to learn their language. Local Naturalist Harry Wallin will lead us on a journey to learn more about the language of trees.

Join us as we venture into the trails of Historic Charlton Park to discover how to read the trees that grow in this area. During this walk, you will learn how to distinguish trees without the distraction of their leaves, observe where and how they grow, and what growth form they take. Armed with this knowledge, participants will be able to identify trees in the other three seasons of the year more easily, and understand why trees grow the way they do. At the conclusion of the walk, there will time for brief discussion and Q&A back at the Upjohn Office.

Parking will be at the Upjohn Office building, and we will walk to the trails from there. The introduction to the walk will begin promptly at 2:30 p.m., so please arrive a few minutes early. Please dress for the weather. In case of inclement weather, please watch this page, the website homepage, or our Facebook page for information on cancellation.

Can't wait to see you!
