Wait, What? Yes, you read that right. Even though eastern white pine trees are not native to Missouri, they are often in urban areas and urban landscapes since they grow easy and fast, and they are a beautiful tree. In this program, we will discuss various pine (or other evergreen) trees, including Missouri's only native pine tree species, and recipes using pine needles. The recipes we will be covering will be pine needle tea and pine needle cookies, using needles from eastern white pine trees.
**Even this is intended for adults, this program can be enjoyed by the whole family.

This is a virtual program. You will receive an email 24 hours in advance with the Webex link, and then again, the morning of the program.
