TLC: TREMENDOUS TREES (10:00 am - 12:00pm)

From Calendar: TLC Classes

Location: Tuscawilla Preserve

Details:

WHAT
With fall in full swing, TLC will celebrate the majesty and significance of trees. Tuscawilla Prairie has a towering canopy of trees along its margins, and we will learn how to identify the big ones and the small ones below them. A noted Florida forester will be our guest expert, and she will teach us how to use some of the tools of her trade.

Some of the questions we’ll tackle include what the differences between deciduous and evergreen are, what crenate and palmate mean, and much more. Come explore the tree-mendous world on Tuscawilla Preserve, and stay for a climb or two.

Programs are held Thrasher Park on Tuscawilla Preserve in Micanopy, FL. Please park at the Micanopy Native American Heritage Park on Tuscawilla Road (SE 165th Ave).
