About this Event

Part of our Rensselaer Naturalist Series! Oak vs maple? Red maple vs. sugar maple? No worries -- trees are one of the easiest groups to learn, and the Kinderhook Creek Preserve’s many habitats have a good variety. Dave Hart will show us how to identify the different kinds of trees and tell us their ecological and cultural stories.

Meet at the parking lot of the Kinderhook Creek Preserve in East Nassau.

Register in advance. Questions? Contact David Gaskell at gaskell@nycap.rr.com.

Suggested donation of $5.
