Story Cores: Tales Trees Tell in a Changing New England Landscape

August 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm EDT

2024 Red Barn Series, Newfound Audubon
No registration necessary – just come and join us!

Speaker: Dr. Shelly Rayback, University of Vermont

In their rings, trees record and store information that reveal to us important details about their environment and our landscapes over decades to centuries. In New England, trees such as eastern hemlock and red spruce have recorded information about changing temperature and rainfall since the 1500s. Tree rings also tell us how trees and forests have responded to and recovered from problems like acid rain and will respond to rising greenhouse gases. Come learn more about these story cores which includes trees that were sampled at Paradise Point!

Please park across the street at Ash Cottage. Download a map here. Note that this is now a private residence and there is no bathroom access.
