Outdoor & Unplugged: Seasonal Tree Identification
October 8 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am$30
Back by popular demand!
Tickets $30 per person. All proceeds are donated to support Kensington’s Sawyer Park.
We are very excited to bring back one of our most popular events – Tree Identification with Harold Bragg! This year, we will be offering multiple dates to give you the opportunity to expand your botany knowledge in all the beautiful seasons of New England, and learn how to distinguish different types of trees by their bark, leaves, color, and other identifiers depending on the season.
Hosted by, Harold Bragg from Tree Talk, he has been Alnoba’s advisor on all landscapes, forestry installations and management for over 35 years. You will walk our trails and learn how to study the unique features, texture, size, and color of each of the twelve native trees located in our mature forest.
We hope you will support us in our mission to spread awareness about the environment, and the importance of learning about nature. Knowing the physiology of trees that are on your land can be a useful guide management tool and help keep our trees thriving!
Every species of tree has its own fall signature, which we will explore and discuss. The distinct colors of several species will be identified, and the opportunity to enjoy the season will be shared.
