Tree Labels at Thurston Nature Center!

The Thurston Nature Center (TNC) is home to 68 native Michigan Tree Species and 30 others. The tree labels celebrate the rich variety of trees at the TNC and also further the TNC's educational mission.

About the Labels

The labels were were produced by Midwest Graphics & Awards on Liberty and Wagner in Ann Arbor. Each tree label includes: 1. Tree Name; 2. Scientific Name; 3. A fact about the tree that may help for people learning to identify trees.

Appreciation

In this and all efforts related to the Thurston Nature Center trees, many thanks to Thurston Nature Center Land Steward Mike Conboy. In addition, thanks to the Matthaei Botanical Gardens staff for their advice in our tree labeling efforts.
