Community Nature Study Series – Tree Stories: Reading the Rings

February 7, 2019 at 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

In this workshop, Dr. Ogle will provide hands-on opportunities to look at the internal wood structure of trees and learn how climate can impact annual tree growth for 100’s of years.Tree rings can be used to understand climate variability, fire dynamics, settlement dates of indigenous people, and pest or pathogen outbreaks. Most of the workshop will be devoted to hands-on activities that allow participants to compare growth patterns of multiple tree species and to relate local tree growth to regional climate phenomena such as El Nino-La Nina cycles or multi-year droughts.  Register Now
