Saturday, March 9th at 10 a.m. Winter Tree Walk & Potluck Lunch, sponsored by Windham Regional Woodlands Association.
Bill Guenther, who recently retired as Windham County Forester, will lead a winter tree identification walk in a Halifax woodlot. Bill will show us how to use characteristics such as habitat, growth form, branching pattern, and bark to identify about 20 species of native Vermont trees. This includes a special spot from where we can view four different species of birch tree.
We will walk along gently rolling terrain. Bring your snowshoes, as conditions in Halifax are typically colder and snowier than Brattleboro. The walk will begin at 10 a.m., followed by a potluck lunch. For those who may not be up for snowshoeing, you are welcome to come and sip hot cider and talk about trees while the others are on the walk. Well-mannered dogs on leashes are welcome to participate in this event.
This is a very popular event and it fills up quickly. If you plan to join us, please contact Linda Lyon (LindaaLyon@gmail.com or 802-368-2211) by March 6th for directions and parking details.
