Spring is when many of our trees are at their most vibrant, flowering and getting pollinated in a few short weeks. Catch those trees in the act before they settle into a long boring summer of leafy photosynthesis.

On this tour, you’ll walk through Rock Creek Park to observe some of the trees that live in our native forests. In addition to tree identification, we’ll discuss the natural history of trees and how factors such as invasive species and changing cultural values have influenced the trees that surround us today.

This class is led by a tree enthusiast, not expert; you’re invited to share your own knowledge about trees along the way. Dress for the weather and be prepared for a bit of hiking. (Wear comfortable shoes and bring water.)

The rain date for this class is Sunday, May 7 at 1 p.m.
