Nature Station – Tree Timelines at Grey Rocks

Nature Station – Tree Timelines
Trees are amazing organisms that do so much for the ecosystems they inhabit – capturing carbon and producing oxygen, soaking up water to reduce runoff, and providing habitat and food. We can learn a lot about trees from looking at their leaves and bark, but did you know that we can also learn from looking at the insides of trees? Join NLRA educators as we take a closer look at trees! You’ll be sent on a quest to find the most common tree species at Grey Rocks and then have the chance to make art using the patterns found in tree rings (Note: this activity uses ink and can get messy, please dress accordingly.) Nature Station is a drop-in program with activities designed for kids of all ages. This program is free and open to all.
