Spring Tree Identification Walk

Spring Tree Identification Walk

Saturday, April 22, 2023 (9:00 AM)

Esopus Creek Conservancy and the John Burroughs Natural History Society are co-sponsoring a Tree Identification Walk at Esopus Bend Nature Preserve in Saugerties on Saturday, April 22, 2023.  Vern Rist will lead us at a leisurely pace through a variety of woodland habitats in the Nature Preserve.  Spring leaves should be starting to show as we observe and discuss bark and branch features that provide clues to help identify the tree species.

Pre-registration required, meeting location determined at time of registration.  Bring binoculars and tree guides if you have them, and be prepared for Spring conditions that may include cool air temperatures and light rain.  Heavy rain will cancel the walk.  Children are welcome and encouraged, but please do not bring pets.

Contact Steve Chorvas (schorvas@gmail.com) for additional information or to register.  This joint ECC/JBNHS Environmental Education walk is free and open to the public, but pre-registration is required and group size will be limited.  For additional information about upcoming ECC Nature Walks and Paddles, please visit www.esopuscreekconservancy.org.
