Following the meeting the attendees were invited to participate in a Tree ID Hike following a route which identifies over 20 trees in the park. Although the group was small, they had a great time sharing information and educating each other.

The Tree ID Hike route and tree identification materials are available to the public through the City of Janesville Parks Department or from JSTAC by sending a request by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a gift to all the attendees the RPMGA Advisory Committee passed out free bur oak seedlings to anyone who wanted to take them.
