RELATED ARTICLE: Tremendous Tree Scholarship Event

Look for this "tree"-mendous new event at the Fitness Farm! Participants will walk the one-mile trail and stop at each flagged tree. There, they will identify the tree and correctly spell its name.

The trees will be divided into two groups. Kids eight and under will identify the trees on the front nine. Kids nine to twelve will identify the trees on both the front nine and the back nine. The trees that are not yet in leaf will have clues attached to them. The clues may include pictures of seeds, flowers, or leaves.

To practice for this event, check with your local library for books that will help you learn to identify the trees below.
