Get outside and learn something new while the leaves are down! Join our very own
forester Bruce Henry next Friday, February 2nd from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Goose
Island Interpretive Trail on a guided tree identification walk.

Winter is the best time of year for observing tree structures and offers a unique
glimpse into the inner workings of the Refuge’s forested areas. As an experienced
forester, Bruce will be leading a walk focused on the identification of trees using bark
characteristics during winter conditions. All ages and experience levels are welcome!

Participants are encouraged to dress accordingly for the weather. The terrain will be
an unpaved trail traversing approximately 1 mile. The Goose Island Interpretive Trail is
located as you enter Goose Island, take the first left off County Hwy GI. Please
contact the Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife & Fish Refuge at (608) 779-2398
for questions.
