Park Inventory: Palisades Park
October 18, 2018 @ 5:45 pm - 7:45 pm UTC-4Free
Come spend an evening with Casey Trees at this park along the Potomac River!
Cooped up in an office all day? Want to take in some fresh air while you finesse your tree species knowledge? Join Casey Trees at Palisades Spray Park to inventory trees. We will be surveying for health, size and species. Participants will receive a short, hands-on training on site. After learning the tools and techniques participants will split into groups and begin measuring trees. We will be documenting tree species, height, diameter of the trunk, width of the crown, 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!
We will plan to conduct the inventory rain or shine so please wear appropriate clothing and comfortable shoes for walking short distances. Participants are welcome to bring water and a snack.
You can take Metrobus line D6 and get off at MacArthur Blvd. and Dana Pl. Walk southwest on Dana, turn right on Sherier, then left on Edmunds Pl. to the entrance of Palisades Spray Park.
Where to Meet
Be on the lookout for the green/white Casey Trees table. Participants will be emailed a detailed map closer to the inventory date.
Light refreshments will be provided.
