Winter tree identification hike

Curious about identifying the trees and shrubs growing in parks and lawns? Many people are familiar with common tree leaves—oaks, maples, and buckeyes—but identifying trees can be done even when the leaves are down. Join Dr. Ted Auch and the Doan Brook Watershed Partnership on January 23 for an educational hike in the Doan Brook Gorge focusing on spotting common native and naturalized trees and shrubs. Learn why different species of trees grow where they do, and understand how trees relate to stormwater and pollution control.

Hikers will meet at the Fairhill Partners Building, 12200 Fairhill Road, Cleveland 44120 at 2:00pm. The hike will last approximately two hours. Please dress for the elements and expect steep terrain. Advance registration is required. Contact Graham at 216-325-7781 or welling@doanbrookpartnership.org to register. There is a $10 fee for the hike.
