Join Paul D’Agostino, Assistant Director of Public Works for Forestry, City of Evanston, for a Tree Walk along the Evanston lakefront. Paul will identify trees and provide an update about work in this area of the lakefront as the tour walks north. To attend the Tree Walk please meet in Dawes Park just off Sheridan between Davis & Clark, at the north end of the lagoon. If it is cold be sure to bring a jacket and a hat and sunglasses if it is sunny out.
