Branching Out: Tree ID Basics

Trees are all around us - in fact, there are over 100 species found regularly in PA. But can you tell a spruce from a fir? How about a red maple from a sugar maple? Learn tips and tricks to ID'ing some of our common backyard trees in the winter using bark, leaves (if they still have them), and seeds and discover the diversity of trees around you. We will meet at the educational pavilion adjacent to parking lot.
