Bark: Identifying Trees in Winter
Thursday, January 18, 2024,
5:30 pm to 6:30 pm
Join Michael Wojtech, author of Bark: A Field Guide to Trees of the Northeast, to sharpen your tree identification skills and learn how to identify New Hampshire trees by their bark alone. On January 21, Michael will lead an optional in-person field experience at the Harris Center, where you can put your new skills to the test. (Separate registration is required for that event, and space is limited.)
5:30 to 6:30 p.m. via Zoom. To get the login details, please register here.
Closed captioning will be available. For more information, contact Susie Spikol.
Michael Wojtech is a freelance naturalist, writer, photographer, illustrator, and educator who strives to share the science and beauty of natural history in an accessible and compelling way through presentations, participatory activities, and outdoor exploration. He writes and teaches about the structure, growth processes, and ecology of trees — including their bark, buds, leaves, roots, and wood — for all audiences, and explores how knowing the natural history of the places we live and love fosters connection and the feeling of home. Michael earned his MA in Conservation Biology from Antioch University New England. He is the author of Bark: A Field Guide to Trees of the Northeast and co-author of Drawing Leaves and Trees: Observing and Sketching the Natural World.
