While the aroma of balsam is still in the air, take time to appreciate the season’s color- green! We’ll take an easy walk to find several species of conifers and learn how to identify them by their leaves (needles) and cones. Then we’ll warm up at the Nature Center with some hot cocoa and make a simple tree ID guide to take home. This program is appropriate for adults and children ages 5 and up. Please call 518-872-0800 to register.
