Bark: Get to Know Your Trees

Monday, August 4th, at 7:00 pm

Wojtech_Bark_cover (2)The traits typically used to describe trees—leaves, twigs, and buds—are often hard to see or seasonally absent. Join Michael Wojtech, naturalist and writer, for an exploration of bark, which is always visible, in any season. As you hone your perceptive abilities you will learn about a system for identifying tree species by their bark, and discover why such a variety of bark characteristics exist. Why do some species have smooth bark, while on others it is thick and broken? Why does bark peel? Open to naturalists at all levels of experience.

Michael will be available to sign copies of his book, Bark: A Field Guide to Trees of the Northeast. For more information visit: www.knowyourtrees.com

Sign up at the library Reference or Information Desk or call 781-769-0200, x110 or 222.
