Forest Giants…

IRLC and the Depauville Free Library present

Consider the Trees, Especially the Very Old Ones

Thursday, July 13     6:30 pm

Everyone should hug a tree at least once in their lives and some trees are big enough for 2 or 3 people to hug at once!  These giant old trees are becoming harder to find.  Join Susan Gwise as she discusses the big tree project and learn how to recognize old growth trees and just why these ancient denizens of the forest are so important.

This program is best for adults and older teens.

Free and open to the public.  Donations are gratefully accepted.

Registration is apprecicated.
