Talk n’ Trek

For Adults

Talk and Trek I:  Exploring Winter Life and Activity

Winter is a wonderful time to explore the lives of insects,  birds, mammals,  trees and weeds.  With Donald W. Stokes’ A Guide to Nature In Winter as our escort, let’s head outdoors to discover life under, in and above the snow.  Each week participants will prepare for our walk by reading a general information section, usually 2 to 3 pages.  When we head afield, we will hunt for examples of the subject matter and delve into its unique characteristics, history and identification.

Participants should dress in layers, wear sturdy walking shoes/boots, and pack a snack.  If needed, snowshoes will be provided.  Meet at Five Rivers’ Guided School Program Building.

Talk and Trek II:  Winter Tree Buds and Scars

Winter offers an unobscured view of tree buds and scars, two identifying features of trees.  Each week we will head afield to investigate a tree or two lining our path.  Could they be the same ones lining your street?  Join us to find out!
