Friday, April 26, 2013
Michigan Forest Visitor Center
Northern Michigan has an abundance of trees and even in our urban areas trees line our streets. We are fortunate to live in a state that has so many trees. What better place to celebrate Arbor Day than at Hartwick Pines State Park?
- Guided hikes through the Old Growth Forest Trail: 10 a.m. & 3 p.m.
On these guided hikes, Park Interpreter/Forester Craig Kasmer will focus on how trees enhance our lives as well as those critters that call forests “home”.
- Tree Identification Clinic: 1 p.m.
So you think you know your trees? Leaves are not the only characteristic to look at. Come and learn how to identify Michigan’s most common trees.
- Forest Management Information: ALL DAY
Talk with a forester about how to properly manage your forest. Learn how to operate some of the tools that a forester uses.
- Information Station: ALL DAY
We will have lots of information for folks to take home on tree planting, species to plant, tree pruning, invasive insects and plants, etc.
