“Red, Black and Scarlet — Identifying the Oaks”
“Red, Black and Scarlet — Identifying the Oaks” will be offered by Ted Watt, Nancy Goodman, Kim Noyes and Petti Steinman, all collaborative naturalists, on Thursday, Nov. 10, 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the new Hitchcock Center in Amherst.
Then, join the Hitchcock Center, Northfield Mountain and Arcadia for a collaborative unraveling of the mysteries of oak identification on Sunday, Nov. 13, from 9 a.m. to noon for a field trip. After a review of the many oak species found in the Pioneer Valley, there will be a closer look at buds and acorns. Specific identification tips and strategies will be shared and the group will work together to gain skills and confidence in identifying this challenging group. Bring a hand lens if you have one, and join in the fun. The cost is $20 for members and $25 for non-members. Register by calling 413-256-6006. Visit: www.hitchcockcenter.org
