Winter Tree Walk at the Clark College Arboretum
February 25, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 amFree
Trees are beautiful in every season, even in the middle of winter when their branches are bare, stretching for the sky. But look closely: you’ll see tiny buds and new growth, ready to burst out into green and gold come springtime. Join other tree enthusiasts at 10 a.m. this Saturday, Feb. 25, for a midwinter’s walk through the Clark College Arboretum with a guide from Urban Forestry. This Winter Tree ID Walk (part of the TreeTalk series) will help you learn some basic ways to identify trees, even without foliage. Hone your observation skills as you study branch arrangement, bark, buds, leaf scars and other characteristics that will allow you to accurately identify trees in every season.
Participants should dress for the weather. The Tree Walk is free, but you can RSVP by calling 360-487-8308 or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Vancouver’s Urban Forestry Program aims to maximize the aesthetic, environmental, and economic benefits that trees provide by preserving, managing, and enhancing existing trees and other vegetation and promoting the reforestation of the urban area, through an active integrated program with community support and participation.
