No leaves? No problem! You can still learn to recognize oaks, maples, cherries, beech, birches, and other woodland trees in winter. We'll look at tree samples, practice using field guides, and take a hike to test our observation and identification skills. Tree ID guides available for purchase at Visitor Center Gift Shop, BYO guide, or sample guides available for loan.

Instructions and Directions:

Registration Required. No "walk-in" participants may attend. All participants are asked to follow and maintain six feet of distance and wear a face covering unless unable to do so due to medical conditions.

Dress for the weather and prepare for uneven terrain. Snowshoes or other traction assistance may be required depending on conditions; a limited number may be available for loan (call 413-637-0320 to reserve).
