Self-guided winter tree identification

Event has passed

Through March 20

From bark to twigs to a tree silhouette against a cold winter sky, this is the perfect time to go into the woods and observe and learn tree identification. This self-guided one mile walk will focus on the non-leaf characteristics used to identify tree species including bark patterns and textures, leaf buds and scars, tree shapes, and habitat. Along the wooded trail that ends with views of the Cross River, hikers will find over a dozen different tree species native to our area.  Pick up the winter tree identification pamphlet at the Cross River Preserve parking lot kiosk and follow the trail to find the individually marked trees described within. The trail is open anytime during daylight hours at Cross River Preserve. Winter hiking conditions are present so sturdy boots with traction devices are recommended. 291 Route 27, Boothbay. FMI:
