Please join naturalist Tom Walker on a winter tree and shrub ID adventure in January. Learn how to distinguish native and naturalized tree species as well as shrubs without their summer leaves. Participants will learn about bark characteristics, branching patterns, buds, fruits, habitat preferences, and a little bit of history during this half-mile walk at Coy’s Brook Woodlands.

Tom Walker is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst with a Bachelor's Degree in Wildlife and Fisheries Biology. He spent several seasons surveying wildlife on the west coast for the U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management prior to returning to New England. He has many natural history interests and has led walks and given presentations on lichens, fungi, trees, and dragonflies for several organizations.
