EXPLORE! Terrific Trees

March 18, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The group will take a hike to identify trees at Red Run Park, make Play-Doh molds of leaves and bark, discover how to tell the age of trees by looking at ‘tree cookies’ (cross sections), and learn about tapping trees for maple syrup.
A storybook will accompany the syrup portion.
