Learn to identify Michigan trees in winter at the Kellogg Bird Sanctuary

No leaves? No problem. Join Dr. Danielle Zoellner and naturalist Misty Klotz at the W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary next month to learn to identify common  Michigan trees and shrubs using growth form, bark, buds and twigs.

The Winter Tree Identification workshop is set for 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm Saturday, February 8th, and includes a hike on the Sanctuary’s scenic trails to practice identifying tree species, warm beverages to enjoy, and informational materials to take home. 

The cost of participation is $25 for Sanctuary members, and $35 for non-members, and registration is required. An alternate date is set for Friday, February 14th, in case of inclement weather.

The Kellogg Bird Sanctuary is located at 12685 East C Ave., one mile north of M-89 and just west of 40th Street. To learn more, visit birdsanctuary.kbs.msu.edu. Direct questions to birdsanctuary@kbs.msu.edu or (269) 671-2510.
