We meet on the Nature Center front porch.

Fall is a great time to learn more about trees! Some may even put on a colorful display as the season progresses. Jim McKee, a Master Naturalist, tree lover, and bird watcher will be leading more walks in the park this fall to teach us how to identify the trees that live here in Russ Pitman Park. Jim shares lots of interesting historical and biological facts about the many species of trees we have in Russ Pitman Park as well as how to identify them. You are welcome to come to one or all!

This is a FREE, drop-in program. No registration required.
