Secrets of the Trees

"How do I know what kind of tree it is? There aren’t any leaves!" If you’ve ever asked this question, or any other question about how trees grow, survive, and benefit our world, here’s your chance to get some answers.

On Sunday, March 8 from 1 pm - 3 pm, come take a winter walk with New England tree expert Michael Wojtech and author of "BARK"  to learn the secrets of the trees. We’ll walk and talk on trails in Amherst (CHANGED FROM LEVERETT) Easy but uneven terrain, slow pace. Dress warm, and bring snowshoes if you have them.

Limited to 20 participants, so please RSVP for the meeting location to or call 413-549-1097 by Friday, March 6 at 5 pm. Suggested donation: $5 per person.
