Here's another plug for the upcoming winter tree tour that FoFTBP is co-presenting with in our park. It will be led by park neighbor, certified arborist and regular LEAF tree-tour-leader Mark Sherman.
Ever wanted to learn how to tell trees apart in the winter? Now’s your chance! Join us to learn about winter tree identification as we explore the diversity of trees in Trinity Bellwoods Park. Discover the way twigs, buds and bark (not to mention needles and cones!) can help you identify a tree. Learn some quick tricks that will help you identify some common urban trees. Learn about the work of Friends of Trinity Bellwoods Park and how you can join their Adopt A Tree program to care for one of these special trees.
We’ll start with a short presentation indoors and then head outside for a wintry walk through the park. Be sure to dress warmly!
