Identifying Winter Trees program will be held at Riverside Park in Janesville

REMINDER: April 6 continuing education program - Identifying Winter Trees

Hello, everyone.

Just a reminder that the Identifying Winter Trees will be held at Riverside Park in Janesville on Thursday afternoon, April 6 at 4:00 pm.  We'll meet on the north end of the park near the North Pavilion.  Dress for the weather, bring writing materials, and wear moisture proof shoes.

We're hoping to have a good turnout.

Ethan Lee will present the program and he'll have handouts for us.  Photos below show some of the techniques we'll learn in identifying and even measuring trees.
