    Passport to Nature: Tree Identification

    *Please note that physical copies of the booklet state that the event is Sunday, October 30th, which is incorrect. The correct event date is Saturday, October 26th.

    Why do we have so many kinds of trees? Join Donald Craig, a professional forester with over 40 years of experience in southern Ontario woodlands, for an interpretive hike through the Tanager Tract. Donald will identify trees in this significant Carolinian woodland, point out which ones are healthy or struggling and explain why they are growing where they are.
