Buckthorn in winter: "Leafless" tree identification, 6:00 pm
Most of the time we identify woody plants by their leaves. Winter identification can be more challenging, but gives us an opportunity to pay attention to the parts of the tree we don't often notice, such as the bark, twigs, buds, and over all shape and habitat. Early season identification also allows us to find undesirable, invasive trees and shrubs before they can become obscured by the thick summer vegetation, and escape our notice.
Wear clothes (especially shoes) appropriate for the weather!
6:00 pm (note earlier time than usual meeting) location TBA.

Movie Presentation: Queen of the Sun, 7:00 pm
QUEEN OF THE SUN: What Are the Bees Telling Us? is a profound, alternative look at the global bee crisis from Taggart Siegel, director of THE REAL DIRT ON FARMER JOHN. Taking us on a journey through the catastrophic disappearance of bees and the mysterious world of the beehive, this engaging and ultimately uplifting film weaves an unusual and dramatic story of the heartfelt struggles of beekeepers, scientists and philosophers from around the world including Michael Pollan, Gunther Hauk and Vandana Shiva. Together they reveal both the problems and the solutions in renewing a culture in balance with nature. Cosponsored by Bay de Noc Audubon
