No single view of a tree is a fixed snapshot in time that tells the complete story. Join us on Thursday, March 21, to learn about The Growth of Trees. Michael Wojtech will talk about how trees grow, reproduce, and interact with their environment across days, weeks, seasons, and years. He’ll discuss varying scales—from the intricate details of buds, flowers, leaves, and bark that we use for species identification to the collaborative roles of trees in ecosystems. Learn more about the function and experience the beauty of characteristics such as overwintering buds, lobed or toothed leaves, flowers by the thousands, and seeds that fly on the wind.
This program will be presented on Zoom from 6-7 pm in partnership with the Camden Public Library. Please check back for the Zoom registration link.
