Self-guided Como tree trek

If you missed the District 10 Environment Committee’s Tree Treks, where community members can learn how to identify and appreciate the multitude of different tree species living in Como Park, the self-guided tour is now available anytime.

The Tree Trek program has created and installed Tree Tags on numerous trees around Como Park for self-guided tree treks. Find out more at district10comopark.org/tree-trek.
