Cones and Conifers

They’re not just pine trees?  Learn how to identify different types of conifers and draw cones and needles.  Many are essential to wildlife for food and habitat.  Use the online infographic to identify trees in your neighborhood. Join us for our next free family event, Cones and Conifers.

Masks and registration required.

Meet at Blackstone Field, across from the Narragansett Boat Club (2 River Drive, Providence, RI 02906).

This event is part of our monthly “Art & Science in the Park” series. “Art & Science at the Park” is a continuation of the “Art in the Park” series, with more focus on community action to protect wildlife and biodiversity and combat climate change.  Learn about local flora and fauna through art and science activities.  Great for families or to use in the classroom.  Stay longer to enjoy the park, pick up litter, or use your new knowledge to educate others.

This event is led by Melissa Guillet, from 15 Minute Field Trips. Melissa has taught art for over 20 years and is an avid nature-lover involved in gardening, hiking, and collecting data as a citizen scientist.
