We’re not going to tell you! Join us for a guided “tour de forest” and learn how to identify common trees, using field guides and dichotomous keys. Staff naturalists will also discuss the ecological and socio-economic import of tree species you should know. After this workshop, you will be able to branch out on your own and identify trees without getting stumped!  This program is free and open to the public.

Free-roaming cats kill hundreds of millions of birds and more than a billion small mammals in the U.S. every year! An outdoor cat can be expected to live for only 2-5 years, while an indoor cat may live for 15 years or more. Find out what you can do to help preserve our native wildlife from cat predation and how to nurture happy, healthy indoor cats. This program is free and open to the public.
