We’ll focus on othe parts of the tree: bark, buds, branching patterns, and habitat. oin Audubon Vermont for an afternoon of cross country skiing through the lovely trails of  Burlington’s Intervale while we build our winter tree identification skill. We will also pause to explore anything else that we come across, such as animal tracks and signs, as well as bird songs and sighting.
