Branching Out: A Tree Leaf Workshop
Thursday, April 14th at 6:30pm
Branching Out- A Tree Leaf Workshop.pdf

Spring marks the beginning of drastic changes in the woods. The emergence of tree leaves is one of the most notable differences we may observe. Leaves allow us to identify species that were harder to name during dormant winter months. Tree leaves come in a variety of shapes and sizes which helps when trying to identifying them. Learn how to differentiate trees based on their leaves through the use of laminated specimens in this hands-on workshop.

 Members- $2

Not-Yet-Members – $3

Pre-registration is suggested


Crepuscular Hike: Call of the Peeper
Friday, April 22nd at 7 pm

Call of the PeeperFor many, the call of the spring peeper marks the arrival of the long overdue spring season. Their sleigh-bell-like chorus can reach 110-120 decibels from just 6 inches away. For comparison, a jet engine produces 120 decibels from 120 feet away! Despite their loud calls, spring peepers are only about the size of a thumbnail and are seldom seen. Embark on a twilight journey as we search for this very vocal but elusive creature. Flashlight recommended.

 Members- $2

Not-Yet-Members – $3

Pre-registration is suggested- Space is Limited
