Learning how to tell trees apart



January 02, 2003|By Lori Sears | Lori Sears,SUN STAFF

It may seem as though all trees look the same in the wintertime: bare and leafless. So how do you tell one tree from the next if they have no leaves? Actually, it's not as hard as it seems.

Learn all about identifying trees in the winter at the program "Winter Tree Mystery" Sunday at the Anita C. Leight Estuary Center in Abingdon. Children ages 6 to 10 can join a naturalist to look at trees in Leight Park and discover clues to the trees' identities - from their bark to their twigs.

Kids will discover at close inspection how very different one tree is from another.

"Winter Tree Mystery" runs 10:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m. Sunday at the Anita C. Leight Estuary Center, 700 Otter Point Road, Abingdon. Free. Reservations required. Call 410-612-1688.
