Trees and How They Work – The Ecology of the Forest

Trees and How They Work – The Ecology of the Forest

The Cedar Bog Association presents, “Trees and How They Work – The Ecology of the Forest.”

If a tree falls in the forest, what happens to it?  What are mycorrhizae?  How do trees defend themselves against predators?  Does moss grow only on the north side of a tree in the forest?  How long do trees spend in the understory before they get big enough for the canopy?

CBA volunteer naturalist Jean Gayley will answer all these questions and more in a forest ecology lecture and hike at Cedar Bog Nature Preserve on Saturday, May 11 at 10:00am. The lecture will last about 90 minutes and the walk could last 2 hours!

Admission is $10.00 per person.  Cedar Bog Association and Ohio History Connection members are free.  Cedar Bog is located at 980 Woodburn Rd, Urbana, Ohio 43078.  Please call 937-484-4744 for more details.

Bring a sack lunch and we will eat before we take our hike.
