Would you like to know more about our local trees, and improve your tree identification skills? York County Audubon is pleased to sponsor a tree walk at Kennebunk’s Hope Cemetery led by Eileen Willard, an Instructor in Dendrology at the University of New Hampshire.
At 10 a.m. on Saturday, January 29th, we will investigate the native trees and shrubs along the trails and look at some of the older ornamental trees in the Cemetery. How do they all survive the winter? What are some of the ecological strategies? Can you really identify trees without leaves?
Sturdy hiking boots are recommended as the footing is somewhat uneven. If there are icy conditions, please wear micro spikes on your boots or use hiking poles to avoid slipping. If it snows, snow shoes will be ideal. Dress warmly for a 2 hour walk!
Park in the Kennebunk Free Library/Unitarian Church parking lot, which is where we will meet. We will limit participants to 12 adults including students 12 and older.
