Nature Workshop: Identifying Trees and Shrubs in the Sanctuary


Location: Entrance sign to the Frank Stanley Beveridge Wildlife Sanctuary (across from the Recreation Field)

Many of the common trees and shrubs of southern New England can be easily seen along the trails in the Sanctuary along the Little River. We will focus on a dozen or so of these woody plants learning how to recognize them and distinguish them from similar species. Some late season wildflowers will also be seen.
