Winter Tree ID on Little Harbor Loop Trail

Join us for a walk along our Little Harbor Loop Trail led by our Education Program Coordinator and Naturalist, Sarah Kern, and learn tips to help you to differentiate among the variety of trees in the winter months! This program will introduce how to use buds and twig characteristics to identify trees, explore different tree fruits like acorns and other clues and begin to develop an eye for the bark to aid in winter tree identification. We will also be exploring a digital map on the Forest Society's mobile app, powered by OuterSpatial, to aide in our identification. This app can be downloaded prior to the program on your smart phone and can be used across the country!

**All portions of this program will be held outdoors so please dress accordingly**

REGISTER: This workshop is free for Forest Society members and children; $10 for non-members.  Pre-registration is required. No experience required. Register with the link below. (Registration will close on February 4 at noon or when spots are full.)

(Photo: Dave Anderson)Sarah grew up on the east coast while traveling to visit family out west and learned to love the outdoors through camping, hiking and exploring. She joined the Forest Society in 2021 bringing with her over 25 years of educator experience in a wide variety of settings both formal and informal. From public school classrooms to private, preschool to university, Sarah has found that connecting and learning with her community is what inspires her. 

After leaving public school education, Sarah grew the education program at the Center for Wildlife by 70% in just 3 years, allowing the community to connect with and learn about the environment we live in and how our health is intertwined. Creek Farm brings all of her passions together from flora to fauna, history and future, and most importantly the dynamic community that has so much to share! Sarah lives in Strafford, New Hampshire with her two children and a menagerie of rescued animals and can be found skiing in the winter, kayaking in the summer and always looking up to see who is flying overhead.
