Fall Fruit, Buds, and Bark
Sunday, October 27, 2013 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Description: As leaves change color and native trees prepare for winter, join Arboretum Science Advisor Mary Travaglini on a fall stroll to learn to identify trees and shrubs by their fall fruits, bark, or buds. Learn what turns the leaves different colors and how the weather cues plants to retreat for a winter nap. All ages are welcome on this leisurely walk in the brisk fall air.
Mary holds a bachelor’s of science from Cornell University and a master’s in landscape architecture from the University of Michigan. Active as an outdoor educator, landscape architect, and ecologist, Mary has worked extensively on federal lands and within the private sector as a trail crew leader and landscape designer, and has worked most recently for The Nature Conservancy, the National Park Service, and the Society for Ecological Restoration.
