Midcoast Audubon: “The Growth of Trees” with Michael Wojtech (Zoom)

Thursday, March 21 @ 6:30 pm 7:30 pm

The Mid-Coast Audubon‘s series of nature talks in partnership with the Camden Public Library continues on Thursday, March 21 at 6:30 PM with a presentation by naturalist and educator Michael Wojtech, all about the growth of trees.

This is a virtual presentation on Zoom. Register here: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_7RKWbb2mSXythe4etxUxHw

No single view of a tree is a fixed snapshot in time that tells the complete story. Michael Wojtech will talk about how trees grow, reproduce, and interact with their environment across days, weeks, seasons, and years. He’ll discuss 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. Learn more about the function and experience the beauty of characteristics such as overwintering buds, lobed or toothed leaves, flowers by the thousands, and seeds that fly on the wind.

As a naturalist and educator, Michael Wojtech strives to share the science and wonder of trees in an accessible and compelling fashion. He writes, photographs, illustrates, and presents programs about the structure, growth processes, and ecology of trees. Michael has a Masters degree in Conservation Biology from Antioch University, New England, and lives and works in western Massachusetts.


Mid-Coast Audubon is a chapter of Audubon, and affiliated with Maine Audubon. We cover the midcoast inland from Boothbay Harbor, west to Windsor and China, and east along the coast to Bucksport. Our mission is to promote long-term, responsible use of natural resources through informed membership, education and community awareness.

Throughout the year fascinating and informative programs are presented (free!) via the Camden Public Library, and there are numerous field trips to see birds and learn about the natural history of Maine. Come be part of the fun and learning. Check out our events page for dates/times. You can also watch the recorded presentations from earlier programs.
