When the leaves fall from the trees, how can anyone know which tree is which species? Find out by becoming a winter tree detective.
On Saturday, Dec. 12, 2020, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m., children age 8 and older can join their families for “Winter Tree Detectives” at Hidden Oaks Nature Center. Learn how to identify a tree from its terminal buds or trunks. More than just leaves give clues. The fee is $7 per person to become a budding dendrologist, or tree scientist.
