Understanding Tree Communication, with Annie Novak

Thursday, April 13 -- 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Trees can’t speak, but they are in constant communication. Join TML and New York Botanical Garden’s Annie Novak, as we learn more about fungal networks, volatile organic compounds, and how science and popular culture are just catching up with a conversation millions of years in the making. Drawing on the fundamentals of tree botany, you’ll learn how to enrich your observation practices and build a stronger relationship with the trees around you.

This program will be taking place only on Zoom. If you plan on attending, please register below so that we can send you a reminder and a Zoom link to join us on the day of the event. All are welcome!
