August 28 : Hudson Valley Tree Identification
Join our farm manager, Eli Roberts, on a farm tour where you'll learn to identify trees on AOOA and in the Hudson Valley. After this workshop, you'll be able to identify trees like oak, walnut, chestnut, mulberry, hemlock, and others. Eli will teach you how to make your own field-guide "cheat sheet" to identify the trees you come across in your everyday life, too!
Eli has a Master of Forestry degree from Yale, where he studied forest management and agroforestry systems. He has been working on the orchard and gardens at AOOA for the last year and a half. His favorite tree is the mulberry, but there are many close seconds.
