Know Your Trees (webinar)
May 19, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
May 19, 7 – 8:30 p.m. ET
Hosted by Vermont Woodlands Association, Michael Wojtech, author of Bark: A Field Guide to Trees of the Northeast will discuss his book and share information on how to identify the trees around us.
As a freelance naturalist, writer, photographer, illustrator and educator, Michael strives to share the science and beauty of natural history in an accessible and compelling fashion through presentations, participatory activities, and outdoor exploration. He writes and teaches about the structure, growth processes, and ecology of trees-including their bark, buds, leaves, roots, and wood-for audiences at all levels of experience, and explores how knowing the natural history of the places we live and love fosters connection and the feeling of home.
Michael earned his masters degree in Conservation Biology from Antioch University New England in Keene, NH. He is the author of Bark: A Field Guide to Trees of the Northeast and co-author of Drawing Leaves and Trees: Observing and Sketching the Natural World. His article “The Language of Trees: On a Walk with Rutherford Platt” was recently published in American Forests.
