  • This event has passed.

Take a hike through the woods with the Mt. Cuba Arboriculture Team and learn to recognize common native trees. Tree identification becomes quick and rewarding when using easy and practical identification tricks such as leaf shape, bark texture, silhouettes, and fruit and nuts found on the ground. Class will be held entirely outdoors, so dress for the weather and hiking on steep paths and uneven terrain.

This program takes place in person in Mt. Cuba Center natural lands on Saturday, June 17, 2023. (Rain Date: Saturday, June 24)
