Expedition: Winter Tree Identification

It's not too difficult to tell an oak from a maple in the summer, but could you tell them apart in the winter? Luke Hunt, educator and master naturalist, will teach you how.

At this event, you’ll learn basic tree identification techniques. You’ll also try hands-on twig dissections to show key identifying factors for a variety of trees, including some invasive varieties. Each participating group will leave with a identification booklet, with the hopes that it inspires many future winter walks!
The event will take place indoors – no need for heavy winter clothes. Coffee and light snacks will be provided. The whole family is invited, but the event is especially good for children ages 10 and up.
Expedition: Winter Tree Identification is co-hosted by the Kosciusko Water and Woodland Invasive Partnership and the Lilly Center for Lakes & Streams.
