Tuesdays on the Trail: Trees – More than just Really Big Plants
July 11 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Trees are some of the biggest – and most important – living things on Earth. During this Tuesday on the Trail, participants will learn what trees are and how they fill their role in the forest ecosystem. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to complete a simple art project.
