Time & Location

Andrew Jackson Davis Lyceum, 457 East St, Lily Dale, NY 14752, USA
About the Event
Every forest tells a story. Lilydale's oldest residents are still growing and changing along with the world that surrounds them, and the past holds clues to the future of the unique community of trees within Leolyn Grove. Together we'll learn how the different species, stand structure, and charismatic individual trees in Leolyn weave together a tale of centuries of change. Speaker Erik Danielson is a plant ecologist and American Forests National Cadre member devoted to understanding our region's forests. Following the presentation, we'll walk together through the Leolyn Grove to meet some of the story-tellers in person.
Bio: Erik Danielson is based in Fredonia, NY and works as a Naturalist for the Western New York Land Conservancy. In association with the Native Tree Society and American Forests, he has been measuring trees and documenting forests across the northeast since 2014, from the towering pines of the Adirondacks to the coastal swamps of New Jersey. The shady hemlock groves of Chautauqua and Cattaraugus counties remain closest to his heart, including the Leolyn Grove at Lilydale.
