Free! Earth Day Spring Tree Tour

6 - 7:30 p.m. April 22, 2015
Garfield Park Pavilion,

334 Burton St. SE, GR 49507

Your tree tour guide, Laura Casaletto, OKT urban forester, will lead us through Garfield Park where we will munch leaves and nibble flowers together for Earth Day. The menu includes spruce tips, the nectar inside tulip tree flowers, black locust flowers, Japanese knotweed shoots, redbud blossoms and perhaps entire linden trees. In addition, Laura is bringing ramps for everyone to eat and plant in their own yards as well as a surprise flower everyone can eat.

 

We’ll certainly find something nice underfoot to add to your Mother’s Day breakfast in bed–and you’ll get a little booklet to help you recall what you learned.

 

If it rains, we’ll meet under the pavilion anyway! This free tree tour is part of the food justice mission of OKT and is funded by a grant from the WK Kellogg Foundation.
