Description

"Take a mindful walk through the Preserve’s woods and discover the magnificent patterns, colors, shapes, and textures of Fall. We’ll note deciduous trees and evergreens; collect nuts for identification of their parent trees; and learn the common characteristics that distinguish families of trees based on their shared characteristics. Below the decomposing leaves on the ground, we’ll utilize expert clues such as leaf structures and arrangements, nuts and fruit, bark characteristics, smell, and texture to identify trees. Participants will learn to recognize the most common tree species found at the Preserve including maples, oaks, birches, beaches, hickories, ashes, cherries, and tulip trees."
