Meet the Trees with Michael Wojtech
March 9, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Trees–the biggest plants on the planet–are essential to the well-being of countless life forms on Earth. Trees provide oxygen, improve air quality, sequester carbon, temper the climate, stabilize our soil, support wildlife, and they provide shade and beauty on our landscape.
On Saturday, March 9, join us in Kestrel’s beautiful forest, the Greenberg Family Conservation Area in Westhampton, to learn more about the function and origins of the characteristics that define each tree species. Naturalist Michael Wojtech, an expert in trees of the Northeast, will be our guide. He’ll share his innovative technique for identifying trees by their bark, and share his intimate knowledge of our arboreal neighbors. During this program, you’ll become better connected with the trees in your local forests and landscapes.
Michael Wojtech is the author of BARK: A Field Guide to Trees of the Northeast, an easy-to-use identification guide for 67 Northeastern species.
Space is limited to 24 participants and registration is required. The program is free but donations are appreciated to cover the costs of this program.
