Tree Walk at Kingman Island

Sat February 24 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm EST

Join Casey Trees and forester Sam Nelson for a tree-focused nature walk on Kingman Island on Saturday, February 24th!

Together, we’ll identify trees as we move from winter to spring, while also discussing climate change, plant philosophy, and the eco-social history of Heritage and Kingman Islands.

While it will be an easy-paced walk, please note there may be muddy or uneven surfaces. No prior tree ID experience or books will be needed; we encourage all to attend.
