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 the identities of your arboreal neighbors. I wrote some thoughts about seeing trees in the New York Times.

I will lead spring 2018 walks on May 5 and May 6. Please send me an email for info on how to register.
