On Sunday, Sept. 25 from 1 to 3 p.m., Merryspring Nature Center will host “Tree Identification and Herbariums” as part of Merryspring’s free family summer programming, co-sponsored by Camden National Bank.

Ever wanted to know how to tell the difference between a Sugar Maple and a Red Maple? Ever looked in the back yard and wondered what kind of wildflowers were growing there? Come to Merryspring’s Tree Identification and Herbariums workshop to learn about trees, plants, and wildflowers. Participants will learn how to identify trees by going on a tree scavenger hunt. Each participant will also have the chance to make their own plant press to start their very own plant collection.

This workshop is part of Merryspring’s Nature Explorers series led by environmental educator Sarah Lambson. These outdoor, family-friendly activities introduce a different nature-based topic each month. Family programs are offered at no charge. Activities are designed for ages 5-12 but are open to all. All children must be accompanied by an adult. In case of rain, activities will be moved indoors.

Merryspring is a member-supported, non-profit nature education center and park located at the end of Conway Road just off Route 1 by the Hannaford shopping plaza in Camden. For more information, call Merryspring at 236-2239 or visit the website at merryspring.org.
