Join Vermont Master Naturalist Alicia Daniel on an outing to learn to identify winter trees as easily as you recognize the faces of your friends. With the hardwood leaves down, winter is a time to tune into more subtle tree characters like bud, bark, silhouette and even scent. On each field trip, we will also look at tree patterns on the landscape and explore what trees can tell us about site conditions like groundwater and soil quality.
Meet at North Branch Nature Center. This session will explore common trees found in the floodplains and riverside forests in central Vermont, including a mix of hardwoods and evergreens.
