Expedition: Woodland Trees

Bring the family out to enjoy the autumnal woodland (and snacks!) at Wawasee Area Conservancy Foundation’s (WACF) beautiful trail system next to the Levinson-LaBrosse Lakes and Wetlands Education Center!

Dr. Nate Bosch, director of the Lilly Center, and Heather Harwood, executive director of WACF, will talk about a variety of topics related to forests and their impact on the health of Lake Wawasee and our other local lakes. This Expedition will be a hands-on, interactive learning experience. After the walk, you’ll know:

  • How to identify trees using leaves and bark
  • How forests change over time both naturally and due to invasive species

Both organizations will also provide updates on recent and ongoing projects.

Don’t forget – snacks will be provided!
