Join Bradley Simpson of the Audubon Naturalist Society to learn how to identify trees in the winter! Summer is not the only time one can explore the forest. During this presentation, you will learn how to use buds, twigs, pith, bark, fruit to help distinguish our native trees from one another without leaves. We will discuss oaks, hickories, walnuts, maples, tulip trees, elms, and more!
