Spring Tree I.D. Walk
April 9, 2022 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
Stroll through the grounds of Old Westbury Gardens with naturalist Carey Russell to learn identification techniques of our most common native and ornamental tree species. The early days of spring are a wonderful time to witness the unfolding of new life as trees begin the process of transitioning from winter into the next growing season. The walk will focus on tree bark and buds, but ever watchful of spring flowers and the occasional early leaf. Becoming more acquainted with local trees and how they are adapted to a particular region is a great way to start one’s own practice as a naturalist, while creating a closer and clearer bond to the nature world where one lives. This is an all-outdoor walking program.
