Tree Identification Walk: “Learn Your Land” Series
June 23, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pmFree
New Canaan’s woodlands are filled with dozens of different tree species, each with their own unique characteristics. Join Aaron Lefland, the Executive Director of the New Canaan Land Trust and Yale Forestry graduate, to learn some of the techniques for identifying these species. Aaron will teach participants how to identify trees by their leaves, branching pattern, and bark texture. He will also discuss each species’ role in forest succession, and explain the important role that each tree plays in our native habitats.
Participants should wear sturdy shoes, and be prepared to walk on wooded, sometimes uneven, terrain.
This event is co-sponsored by the New Canaan Library. Please register using the link, below.
If the 12pm to 1:30pm time slot reaches capacity, an over-flow session will be offered from 1:30pm to 3pm.
