Are you ever curious about the trees you see every day in the City? Join us for a stroll through a residential neighborhood and learn the traits of common Chicago street trees, giving you the expertise to identify them for yourself. We’ll gather indoors at Beermiscuous to hear an overview of leaf shape, flowers, fruits, and bark and then embark on a walk outside. On this walk you’ll learn to identify the trees commonly found in Chicago neighborhoods and how to use a simple field guide to identify trees of Eastern and Central North America. An Arbor Day Foundation Field Guide will be provided to each participant to take home.
Capacity is limited. Sign up now!
