Tree Identification Walk

Take a stroll on the Noland Trail or around your neighborhood, and challenge the kids to a game of Tree ID. Who can identify the most trees correctly? What types of trees do they see? Turn the challenge into a form of BINGO, all while learning about many of the native species around us and how they impact our ecosystem. Learning can be fun, especially outside!
