Past: Barking Up the Right Tree

Cape Girardeau Conservation Nature Center

Registration period: January 20 - March 18

Most of us can tell a maple from an oak by looking at the leaves, but what about during winter? Looking at bark, buds, twigs, and other clues will help you be the detective and solve the puzzle. Identifying trees in winter can help you plan for spring and carryout forest management in cooler temperatures. This program will be outdoor and will cover about mile of easy to moderate trail. You may wish to bring a notebook and bottle of water.

This program is in connection with the Native Plant Seminar but may be attended for as a stand-alone program. Look for virtual native plant programs March 14-17, then visit us at the nature center on March 18 for guest speakers, a tree ID hike, a craft corner, and native plant vendors. Missouri Wildflowers Nursery and Forrest Keeling will be on site from 9 am 1 pm with a variety of native plants, trees, and shrubs available for purchase.
