Come and learn about our native woody flora!
Join Michael Rolli, at the Thomas P. Bentley Nature Preserve for a winter walk as he teaches you how to identify a variety of trees and shrubs. Winter offers us the best opportunity to learn about our important native woody plants. Michael will discuss identification, uses, and lore of the native trees and shrubs- from the giant white oaks and hickories, to the lesser-known shrubs and recently planted saplings.
