Forever Green - Pine Trees and Cones Galore!
Saturday, December 2, 2023
Take a hike, learn about evergreens, collect natural items and make a pine cone ornament to take home and an edible pine cone ornament to hang in the park for the birds. Deciduous trees have lost their leaves or their dead leaves are hanging by a thread - the forest is pretty bare and open. Evergreens are important winter members of the forest community; they provide shelter and food in the form of pine cone seed dispensers. Explore pine cones of all shapes and sizes! Dress for indoor and outdoor activities.
