Join Audubon Vermont AmeriCorps member Jacob Crawford for a relaxed tree identification walk around the Green Mountain Audubon Center property. We'll talk about buds, bark, twigs, and how you can use these and other clues to help you identify Vermont's native, and non-native, tree species. Learning to identify trees in winter helps you to pick up on tree characteristics and field marks that can often be found year-round, with or without leaves. We will also discuss other tree and forest-related concepts as they pertain to birds, wildlife, ecology, and beyond, so feel free to bring a few questions you may have!
Parking for this event will be at the Visitor Center Parking Lot at 255 Sherman Hollow Rd. Our walk will take us through areas of moderately steep terrain travel along forest trails with occasional stairs/steps.
We are asking those who are able to please purchase a "Full Cost" ticket. Please consider choosing the "No Cost Ticket" if you are a member of the BIPOC community, a young person in school, unemployed or underemployed, an AmeriCorps Member, or purchasing a ticket feels like a burden on your resources.
If you are able to give more, please consider an additional donation of an amount that feels generous, to help cover the costs of those who are not able to pay, so all in our community have the opportunity to participate and help support Audubon Vermont and the work we do to protect birds and the places they need now and in the future!
What to bring:
Warm layers, appropriate hiking footwear, notepad and pencil, binoculars (provided at time of event as needed)
