Description

Scarlet oaks, sweetgums, and all of our maples are known for their brilliant fall color - but what causes that color change and are there other trees who change their look for the season? Why do ginkgos show brilliant yellow colors rather than red? Do you know which tree smells like cotton candy in late fall? Learn the answers to these questions and more during our Fall Foliage Tree Walk.

This Tree Walk will be held on-line via Zoom - so you can join us from the comfort of your home. Please pre-register, an invitation to join the webinar will be sent to registered attendees beforehand with the link to join the webinar.
