A walk from 1-4 p.m. on March 10 in the Mapleton Preserve will focus on the under-appreciated beauty and variability of trees in winter. If you take the time to look carefully, they can be identified without their leaves, using clues found in buds, fruits, leaf scars, branching patterns and bark.

Dress for the weather, and bring binoculars and a hand lens if you have them.

This is an intensive workshop, and is limited to 10 people.

The group will meet at 145 Mapleton Road, Kingston.

The cost is $20 per person for materials. Preregistration required by calling 609-608-6455.
