Suggested donation: $10
Hear Michael Wojtech – Naturalist and author of Bark: A Field Guide to Trees of the Northeast
The traits typically used to describe trees—leaves, twigs, and buds—are often hard to see or seasonally absent. Join Michael for an exploration of bark, which is always visible, in any season. Why do some species have smooth bark, while on others it is thick and broken? Why does bark peel? You will learn about a system for identifying tree species by their bark, and discover why such a variety of bark characteristics exist.
