Saturday, October 27, 2018 - 1:00pm to 2:30pm
Cost: 
$5 suggested donation

Join us for a guided tree tour through Colonel Samuel Smith Park! LEAF’s certified arborist will lead the tour and share seasonal tips on tree identification. Focusing on buds, flowers, and fruits in the spring, we’ll then return to the same trees in the fall to look at fall colour, bark and leaf shape.

This event is part of a two-part series which will allow participants to tour the same route in spring and fall to discuss varying tree identification techniques.

Tour Leader: Brenna Anstett
