Here’s a chance to practice the winter tree identification skills I’ve been blogging about on Wednesdays.
On Saturday, February 18, 1:00pm – 3:00pm, I’ll lead a Winter Tree Walk in Schenley Park.
Meet me at the Schenley Park Cafe and Visitor Center at 1:00pm and we’ll walk the trails to see some of the trees I’ve highlighted.
Bring a field guide or the Winter Tree Finder, binoculars or a hand lens so you can see the details, and quarters for the parking meter (unmetered parking is a bit of a walk). Prepare for cold weather and dress warmly. We’ll be moving at the speed of botany (slowly!) so expect to be standing out in the cold.
For directions to the Visitor Center, click here and scroll down to the heading: “Directions to Schenley Park Cafe and Visitor Center, 101 Panther Hollow Road.” The Visitor Center is open from 10am to 4pm with food and hot chocolate. Come early and eat lunch. Here’s the menu.
I hope February 18 will be as nice as the day in December when I took this photo. Watch my blog on the morning of February 18 for final details.
Hope to see you then.
