Moose & Toxic Chokecherry Trees

Invasive Plants Instructor Gino Graziano of the Extension Service, together with Anchorage area schools, and volunteers have observed the damage that winter foraging moose do to trees and shrubs in areas with a high abundance and low abundance of chokecherry (aka European bird cherry, May Day tree, and Canada red).  Come learn about what moose eat in the winter, the damage that moose do to trees, and how biologists assess the impact moose have to trees. Finally, we will discuss how the invasion of chokecherry trees is changing the way moose damage the trees and shrubs they prefer to eat. 2pm. Free program; $5 parking for non-members.
