About the presenter:
As a freelance naturalist, writer, photographer, illustrator, and educator, Michael Wojtech strives to share the science and beauty of natural history in an accessible and compelling fashion through presentations, participatory activities, and outdoor exploration. He writes and teaches about the structure, growth processes, and ecology of trees—including their bark, buds, leaves, roots, and wood—for audiences at all levels of experience, and explores how knowing the natural history of the places we live and love fosters connection and the feeling of home. Michael earned his masters degree in Conservation Biology from Antioch University New England in Keene, NH.
