March Maple Madness!
Taught by Lisa Nett
Lisa hails from the tree filled state of Wisconsin. She studied forestry at UW-Madison, and the art of firewood stacking on the family dairy farm. She rolls through the city streets on a trusty Schwinn while sneaking peeks at the passing trees. Check out Lisa's tree-focused Tumblr, The Tree Seen, or follow her on Twitter, @lisa_nett.
Join us for a local tree identification walk with an emphasis on the wonders of maple trees! We will take a crash course in tree identification, search for signs of Spring, hunt for maple flowers, and ponder the loveliness of trees in the leafless season.
And yes, there will be a maple syrup tasting (that's right: TASTING). Your pancakes will thank you.
This walk meets rain or shine in Prospect Park. Exact meeting instructions will be sent the day before the walk.
