Tree Identification Hike

Saturday, June 16th at 1:30 p.m.

Conservation Commissioner and DEEP Park Maintainer Carl Arsenault will take us on a tour of the trees of Marcus Cooke Park on Old Rock Hill Road. We encourage everyone to get out and learn a little more about the trees that surround us and how they help the planet. Wallingford is host to many different types of trees – let’s get out and explore!

As with all our outdoor events, kids must be accompanied by an adult.
