Come join local herbalist and arborist Alex Klein for a walk around the grounds to get to know our local trees in all their summertime glory. Compared to our other Tree ID walks, we'll focus a little more on leaf structure this time around. We will also assess how trees are responding to their environmental conditions and how this affects the way they appear and other irregularities in form. As always, we will talk about natural history, ecology and cultural uses of our astounding local tree species. Come with lots of questions and ideas about what you've been seeing in the canopy over the summer.

Instructor: Alex Klein

Alex Klein is an herbalist in Boston, where he runs a humble practice offering sliding-scale consultations to help his neighbors feel better using plant medicine. He works with people on all sorts of health concerns, though given the impetus of our modern world, most often finds himself helping clients with mental health and sleep struggles, chronic illnesses and pain, and menstrual and digestive issues. He trained under 7Song at the Northeast School of Botanical Medicine and the Ithaca Free Clinic, and on occasion staffs herbal First Aid tents at primitive skill gatherings. He has also climbed trees up and down the East Coast as an arborist, getting to know well the goings on of the upper canopies, as well as the understory of the forest through his botanical expeditions as a wildcrafting herbalist. Alex sees himself as an intermediary between people and plants, helping connect clients and students to nature in a way that can bring enjoyment and ease to their lives.
