Explore Nature Saturday: Tree Detective
August 12th, 2017

Come explore the trails at the Preserve! Three trails offer options for hiking (.25 mi to 1.75mi), all around or near the 10-acre lake. You can bring a picnic lunch to enjoy at the Lake Pavilion or at the Learning Shed. Bring family, friends, or even your leashed dog.

Hiking is on your own, but a Preserve educator will be onsite to answer questions and provide educational tools for you to take on the trail. Check out guidebooks, interactive learning tools, or kid’s Adventure Backpacks to use during your visit.

This month's program emphasis: Tree Detective. Guidebooks available to take on the trail & posters at the Learning Shed will help you learn to identify common species of native trees. The Preserve also has over 50 tree ID stations on the trails to help you immediately identify common species. Kids will make leaf rubbings that identify leaf characteristics.

Admission is $3 per person/maximum $10 per family, free to Preserve members.

Hike Only Saturdays are part of our program of monthly access to the Preserve on the 2nd Sat of each month.
