Tree-mendous Winter Tree Id Trek Scheduled

On Sunday, February 21, 2016 sharpen your natural detective skills by trekking the trails of Sweet Arrow Lake County Park to search for the true personalities of a variety of deciduous trees. Service forester Frank Snyder of the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Bureau of Forestry leads 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.

Meet at the large pavilion near the Park clubhouse at 2:00 p.m. and be sure to dress for the weather. All participants will receive a complimentary copy of the “Common Trees of Pennsylvania” field guide. Grab your hat and mittens and get out there and enjoy the winter with us! This program is free and open to the public.
