Learn to identify trees with only buds, twigs, and bark as clues. We will walk the many trails through the Oak-Hickory woods of Dornwood Park. Learn to identify multiple oak and hickory species as well as elm, ash, cherry, sycamore, paw paw, bladdernut, and others. Children are welcome and enjoy "scavenger hunting" in the woods. Last year we had great looks at a barred owl.
