Walking through Michigan’s forests, one may experience many mysterious sightings: humps, bumps, pits, and valleys are all common features. If you look closely, you might also see crooked trees, or random boulders, or old fence posts in the middle of nowhere. But what do all these features mean? Join us to learn more!

The 2022 Michigan Forest Forensics program will begin with an introduction to forest forensics in a webinar format followed by a historical hike at the Chocolay Bayou Nature Preserve.
