Looking to learn more about how to identify trees and shrubs in our winter landscape? Winter tree identification can be tricky, but with some key tips attendees of this hands-on workshop will be well on their way to expanding their skills as a naturalist. Join us on Saturday, December 16th from 10am-12pm, as Bennington Country Forester, Kyle Mason, guides us on a Winter Tree Identification Walk at the Greenberg Reserve managed by the One World Conservation Center.

We will meet for a short indoor presentation and move outside for a walk on the trails of the Greenberg Reserve which is comprised of an open meadow, wetland and wooded hillside at the southern entrance to Bennington. Dress for the weather. This program is free and open to the public. The One World Conservation Center is located at One World Conservation Center, 413 US Rte 7 South, Bennington, Vermont.
