Bark: Get to Know Your Trees


The traits typically used to describe trees—leaves, twigs, and buds—are often hard to see or seasonally absent. Join naturalist and author Michael Wojtech for an exploration of bark, a tree component that is always visible, regardless of the season. Participants will hone their perceptive abilities, learn 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? We will take a closer look in this in-depth program.

Note, this program will not be recorded or available afterwards.
