Part of our Rensselaer Naturalist Series co-sponsored by Rensselaer Land Trust and Rensselaer Plateau Alliance! All are welcome to attend. Oak vs maple? Red maple vs. sugar maple? No worries -- trees are one of the easiest groups to learn, and the Kinderhook Creek Preserve’s many habitats have a good variety. Dave Hart will show us how to identify the different kinds of trees and tell us their ecological and cultural stories.
