LECTURE SERIES: Walking Tour: "Trees are for the Bay, What about you?"
Lecture given by: Frank Lopez
Have you ever seen a beautiful tree and wondered what it is, only to get too busy to look it up or not even know where to start? Then, this program is for you. We will take this class at a nice, relaxed pace. First, we will go over the basics of how to identify trees using a simple key. Then, off we will go for a leisurely walk outside and put our new skills to work, and as a group identify some of these stately treasures. Along the way, we will talk about tree lore and discuss why trees are so important to water quality. From the far reaches of the thousands of headwaters to the most productive estuary in the United States, the Chesapeake Bay, trees play an important role. Once we return to the museum, we will wrap up. As a bonus, you get to keep your tree ID booklet. Now, you can hone your skills in your very own back yard, or where ever you go.
