Trees & Time

Glen Providence Park - main entrance
550 West State Street

Time seems to slow down in the winter, but even in dormancy trees are still active. Sap flows, buds swell, and wounds seal. Join certified arborist Mike Rolli for a mid-winter stroll through the woods to consider time on a longer scale and learn about the age, longevity, and succession of trees and their habitats within Glen Providence Park. 

Those who attended Mike’s previous walks know the remarkable depth and breadth of his knowledge of our local trees and plants, and the fascinating details he shares. He has worked on an extensive botanical survey of the species to be found in the glen.

Rain date Sunday, February 24*
