Kids, adults, parents, families… everyone is welcome to come learn the trees of the gorgeous Lair Hill. Plenty of shade is available under the spreading canopy of magnificent landmark trees. How many different kinds of trees do you think there are in one park: Five? Ten? Fifteen… Twenty???
We will cover identification, ecology, edibility and traditional medicinal uses in a light way. Although the focus of this walk will be oriented towards kids aged 8-12, it will still be engaging for all family members who want to learn tree identification… If you are already a tree person, test your knowledge. Questions from all experience levels are welcome. Let’s help kids use their amazing capacity to recognize patterns and turn it towards exploring leaves, bark, flowers, twigs and cones!
