Earth Day Tree Walk guided by Bruce Holland-Moritz aka The GreenMan

Saturday, April 19th, 4:30 to 6:30 pm

The Earth Day Tree Walk is being offered as a basic appreciation and learning identification methods, as well as understanding some of the edible, medicinal, and ecological importance of the trees that are our neighbors in our Northern Michigan home-place.

Meet at the ArtCenter of TC, and we’ll wander around Bldg. #50 grounds learning about the unusual trees collected and planted by Dr. Munson, and then, for those who wish to take a heftier hike, we will head back on the Munson Trails to consider native trees in the natural areas.

This is a free event, welcoming all ages. Donations will be gratefully accepted, and go towards the Earth Day Parade.

Please RSVP at the number below, or by emailing:

Sponsored by: Little Artshram and The Primitive Skills Core Group
