A bit chilly but happy to be out in the woods!

On a cold day at the beginning of March, a group of hearty treehuggers assembled to learn more about trees and their bark than they ever thought possible!  The inspirational teacher was my good friend Michael Wojtech, the author of Bark, a Field Guide to Trees of the Northeast.  This gathering was sponsored by Kestrel Land Trust.  Here’s just a piece of what you may have missed.  Besides learning about those incredible leafy, barky friends we share our hikes with, as Michael said,  the day was “packed with cocktail-party-ready facts:”



About John Body

I live in Western Massachusetts, in the incredibly beautiful Connecticut River Valley. I've been hiking, kayaking, and tracking wildlife throughout the Valley with lots of photos and videos that people may like to see. Whenever I travel I also take my cameras just in case I see great scenery or wildlife. My passion is wildlife conservation so I try to attend wildlife workshops and land preservation events (Habitat, Habitat, Habitat!). When I get a chance, I videotape the experts, they're just so knowledgeable and inspiring. I hope you enjoy my posts.
