Join Casey Trees at Lafayette Recreation Center on a lovely fall day to collect important information about trees in upper Northwest D.C.If you love trees, science and discovering new parks, this is the event for you! Come put your tree skills to the test and take in some fresh air with fellow nature enthusiasts.
Participants will receive a short, hands-on training on-site. After learning the tools and techniques, participants will split into groups and begin assessing trees. We will document tree species, height, trunk diameter, crown width, overall health, and more.
Who Should Attend?
Open to the general public, you do not need any prior experience to join us. If you have participated in our Trees 101 or Trees 201 class, this will be a great way to put your knowledge into action!
