Tree walks

Since 2014, I’ve led tree walks in the Washington, D.C. area. Learning to identify trees is a great way to spend time outside and learn more about your environment. I wrote about seeing trees for the New York Times.

I’m leading tree ID walks on Saturday, November 3 at 1 pm and Sunday, November 4 at 10 am. Please send me an email if you’d like to attend one of them.

For the November 3 walk, you’ll need to register on the Knowledge Commons DC website at
