Eagle Marsh includes a mature woods and an emergent tree area. Using tree “cookies,” bark samples and leaves, we discuss the parts of trees. In addition, we compare and contrast the similarities and differences between different tree species, and examine what animals depend on trees. Meeting at the Eagle Marsh barn (6801 Engle Road, Fort Wayne), we will divide into small groups and move between stations along the trails of Eagle Marsh, while exploring our emergent and older woods. We will then explore what adaptations tree make in order to survive in a wet environment. Please dress for the weather, boots are recommended. This event is fun for children ages 3 to 5 with a responsible adult.
