No single view of a tree is a fixed snapshot in time that tells the complete story. Join Michael and discover how tress grow, reproduce, and interact with their environment acres days, weeks, seasons, and years, and over varying scales - from the intricate details of buds, flowers, leaves, and bark that we use for species identification to the collaborative roles of trees in ecosystems. Learn more about the function and experience the beauty of characteristics such as peeling bark, overwintering buds, lobed or toothed leaves, flowers by the thousands, and seeds that fly on the wind.
If time and weather permit, the workshop will end with an examination of trees near the library.
This program is led by Michael Wojtech, author several books including Bark: A Field Guide to Trees of the Northeast.
