UT Tree ID Walk
December 1, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
In our tree ID and mapping walks, you’ll get to know Central Texas trees and our new OpenTreeMap community tree mapping project, TreeFolks Austin Tree Map. We’ll cover ID techniques and talk about the value of mapping trees, how to map your trees, and how to share your favorite trees with your friends and community.
Laminated field guides will be available for use during the hike. If you would like to take a field guide home, you can receive one as a gift with a donation of $8. Bring water, wear sunscreen and comfortable walking shoes, and dress appropriately for weather. The walks and workshops are free, but limited to 20 people. We recommend downloading the OpenTreeMap app on your smartphone or tablet and setting up a free user account prior to the walk.
