That’s a wrap on Tree Wonder 2023

Our 2023 season is over. It is getting chilly outside. The program will resume in April 2024. In the meantime, visit the tree or look through the drawing archive on Instagram.

Birds—here in the winter, too

We will host the Christmas Bird Count (CBC) on December 17th. Be a part of a 124-year-old conservation event. Details forthcoming.

Volunteer Opportunity

Our award-winning seasonal change monitoring program is looking for winter (November – March) season volunteers. This is the perfect time to get to know a species in the park as the tree transitions between fall-winter and winter-spring. The time commitment is 1 tree, 1x per month. The training is simple and free. Email us if you would like to learn more about this program.
