Gifford Pinchot's Grey Towers Hosts Virtual Seminar May 11 By Michael Wojtech On The Growth Of Trees A Journey Through Time

Before the visitor season begins in earnest, Gifford Pinchot’s
Grey Towers Heritage Association in Pike County will offer a free, virtual seminar on May 11 from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. entitled, “The Growth of Trees: A Journey Through Time.” 

Michael Wojtech of Know Your Trees will discuss how trees grow, reproduce, and interact with their environment across days, weeks, seasons, and years and over varying scales—from the intricate details of buds, flowers, leaves, and bark that we use for species identification to the collaborative roles of trees in ecosystems. 

Michael Wojtech, a freelance naturalist, writer, photographer, illustrator and educator, strives to share the science and beauty of natural history in an accessible and compelling fashion through presentations, participatory activities, and outdoor exploration. 

He writes and teaches about the structure, growth processes, and ecology of trees—including their bark, buds, leaves, roots, and wood—for audiences at all levels of experience, and explores how knowing the natural history of the places we live and love fosters connection and the feeling of home.
