Revisiting Floracliff’s Old Oaks: A TreeSnap Training and Citizen Science Workshop

October 9, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

$15.00

Instructors: Dr. Ellen Crocker (UK), Beverly James (Floracliff)

Hiking Level: Moderate to Difficult

Floracliff is home to some of the oldest known trees in Kentucky. This Fall marks the 10th anniversary of the research project that “discovered” these old chinkapin oaks through dendrochronology. For this workshop, we will be revisiting these revered oaks and submitting updated measurements and observations to TreeSnap. TreeSnap is an app for foresters, landowners, and citizen scientists to easily record information about trees and share that data with scientists. Scientists are using this information to aid research projects focusing on genetic diversity and the factors that allow some individual trees to survive. Participants will be trained to use TreeSnap and will learn about the characteristics of old trees, the uniqueness of Floracliff’s old trees, and their significance to the region.

This event is part of the Urban Forest Initiative’s Tree Week.
