Led by Stewardship Coordinator Cheri Brunault, participants will uncover clues to name the trees of the forest, even if they are not wearing their distinctive foliage. This program is great for budding naturalists or landowners looking to strengthen their knowledge of local tree species, as well as anyone looking for a thoughtful walk in the woods.

Brunault will share how to identify a variety of tree and shrub species that grow in Butler Head Preserve using twigs, branch structure, and bark.

This event is free and open to public. This is a light rain or shine event and the workshop content is targeted for adults and children 10 years old and older.

This event is co-sponsored by the Bath Community Forestry Committee.

Registration is required due to the limited class size. Please contact KELT at 207-442-8400 or fill-in the Google Form below.
