Tree-Mendous Winter Tree ID Trek at Sweet Arrow Lake

Sharpen your natural detective skills by trekking the trails of Sweet Arrow Lake County Park on Sunday, February 19, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. to search for the true personalities of a variety of deciduous trees.

Meet at the large pavilion near the clubhouse and be sure to dress for the weather. Retired forester and arborist Frank Snyder will lead you on a field walk, now that the leaves are down, to learn how to identify deciduous trees using twigs, buds, bud scars, bark, tree form and other features. All participants will receive a complimentary copy of the “Common Trees of Pennsylvania” field guide. Grab your hat and mittens and get out there to enjoy the winter with us!

This program is free and open to the public.
