Winter Tree Detectives

Outdoor
05:30 PM To 07:30 PM
Location: MooseWood Nature Center, Presque Isle, Marquette, MI
In Winter, trees become more mysterious to us without their leaves. But they still hold clues to their identity in their twigs, cones, seeds, bark, location and shape. Knowing our tree neighbors' names makes them more familiar and personal to us. It's the essential first step to learning more: whether a tree is a native or invasive, a source of food and shelter to birds, susceptible to certain pests, or good for wood working.



The class will be presented by Matt Watkeys, forester for Marquette and Alger County Conservation Districts. An introductory discussion will take place inside the Center, followed by the outside learning portion of the class.



The program charge is $5 for an individual and $10 for a family-up to four. Meet at the Center 30 minutes early if you want to rent snowshoes for $5 for the event. Call 249-8924 or email info@moosewood.org for questions or information.



MooseWood Nature Center is located in the old Shiras Pool building on Presque Isle, Marquette.
