Behold the Bark
March 26 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Trees provide us with many wonders to behold – cooling shade, pleasant flowers, beautiful foliage, and colorful fruit. However, when the gardens go dormant for the long winter’s slumber, bark now becomes more eye-catching and apparent. Textures, colors, and patterns of winter bark now stand out and distinguish one species from another.
Bark, or cork, on trees and shrubs does more than just look gorgeous; it performs vital functions for the sedentary tree or shrub which must continually adapt to its surrounding environment throughout its entire life.
Come and walk through the late winter garden with Jon Genereaux to discover the heart and beauty of bark, to observe the subtle features of winter bark, to contemplate its purpose, and to also find berries and seeds that bring a chilly late winter landscape to life.
This guided walk will be 1.5 to 2 hours mostly on trails with an occasional jump off to get up close to a tree off trail. Open to all who enjoy a walk, fresh air, and a bit of conversation. So bring your ears to HLG on Saturday, March 26, at 1:00 pm, and listen to what the trees have to say.
Cost: $10 member / $15 non-member / $5 ages 13-17.
Limit: 25 Participants. Please call 517-431-2060 to register.
Wear walking shoes or hiking boots and dress for the weather. In the case of inclement weather, the walk may be cancelled, postponed, or rescheduled.
PLEASE NOTE: This walk will be mostly on natural trails; however, it may not be wheelchair, stroller, or wagon friendly.
