Title: Groups acting on trees

Abstract: I'll discuss several of the ways one can learn about groups via their actions on trees.  There will be many examples and pictures.  Then, we'll briefly discuss folding paths; a tool for understanding complicated actions. Finally, I'll mention some applications of folding paths.
