Glen Providence Park - main entrance
550 West State Street

Come get to know the trees & shrubs of Glen Providence Park – familiar and unfamiliar, old and recently-planted, common and rare, living and dead! We will look at often-unseen ecological connections, uses, and value of our local woody flora. This walk will be led by certified arborist Mike Rolli – those who attended Mike’s previous walks know the remarkable depth and breadth of his knowledge and the fascinating details he shares. Mike has worked on an extensive botanical survey of the species found in the glen.
