Which tree do I see?

What: The leaves are down and the buds aren’t quite out yet. So how do you know what kind of tree you’re admiring? RiverLink has the key: a winter tree-identification walk along the Wilma Dykeman RiverWay. The guided tour starts with a hands-on presentation so you know what to look for. Then the group will embark on a journey through the woods to put its newfound knowledge to work. Believe it or not, even a novice can pick out a tree from just its buds and twigs.

When: Saturday, Feb. 4, and Saturday, Feb. 18, 2 p.m.

Where: Guided walks depart from the RiverLink office, 170 Lyman St.

Price: Free
