Saturday, March 24, 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm – Bark: Get to Know Your Trees


The traits typically used to describe trees, leaves, twigs, and buds are often not clearly visible or seasonally absent. Join Michael Wojtech, naturalist and writer, at Tower Hill Botanic Garden, 11 French Drive, Boylston, Massachusetts on Saturday, March 24, from 1 – 4 for an indoor/outdoor exploration of bark, which is always visible, in any season. You will learn about a system for distinguishing bark characteristics and discover clues to bark ecology.
