Learn to recognize trees now so you can enjoy the experience even more when they're dressed in their finest.
Meet DuPont State Forest Ranger Wesley Sketo in the High Falls parking lot at 10 am. We will drive as a caravan to a location with a wide variety of trees. Wesley will lead a slow-paced, easy walk to see evergreen and deciduous trees. He will explain that identification of evergreen trees is based mostly on number, location, and shape of needles and cones. Identification of deciduous trees during the winter is based on the color, shape and texture of bark; the pattern of branches; location of buds; and in some cases, leaves or fruit that remain on the tree during the winter. In the absence of leaves, the overall shape of a tree is easy to view and can be informative.
This hike is limited to 15 Friends of DuPont members. Dress for the weather and wear sturdy shoes.
