Architecture of Trees with Joanne Riecke ~ Join Master Naturalist JoAnn Riecke for a free family-friendly guided walk to carefully observe the trees at Tenney Park.  We will follow easy walking paths along Lake Mendota, the Tenney Park Lagoon and Yahara River.  We will learn about and compare deciduous and evergreen trees and look at their various shapes and branching patterns. Weather permitting we may be drawing some trees/branching patterns and share what we notice. Learn how these characteristics help the trees adapt to the environment and their specific locations. 

Nature-expert guided walks in Tenney Park along Lake Mendota and the Yahara River Parkway bike path through the Madison Isthmus are free, family-friendly and held the first Saturday of each month, from 2:30-4pm. The walk begins at the Tenney Beach parking lot, 1330 Sherman Avenue. No registration is required. No pets are allowed. Co-sponsored by Madison FUN Friends of Urban Nature, Madison Parks, Madison Audubon Society, Tenney-Lapham Neighborhood Association  and Friends of the Yahara River Parkway.
