Winter Tree Identification

January 24, 2015 @ 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM


Come out and learn the basics of winter tree identification. We will begin in the Visitor Center with a quick lesson in tree and twig vocabulary. Then we will hike (approx. 2 miles) along the Sangamon River and participants will learn to identify a minimum of 15 native trees by their bark and buds alone. A highlight of the hike will be a visit to one of the largest swamp-white oaks in the state of Illinois. Dress for the weather.

FREE! No advance registration is required. Meet in the Allerton Visitor Center.
