Do you want to improve your ability to identify trees in all seasons? Winter is the time to do that! On this hike up to Flat Rock we will be treated to an afternoon in an ancient oak forest and views from a granitic outcrop. Along the way, participants will learn both basic and advanced techniques for tree identification. We will also discuss forest ecology, wildlife habitat, and more.

This hike is moderately strenuous and open to all knowledge levels. Children are welcome if they can hike up to 3 miles. All participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian for the duration of the outing.

Please bring:
*Sturdy hiking shoes
*Clothes/layers appropriate for the weather
*Rain Gear
*At least 1 liter of water

We love our four-legged friends but pets are not permitted on this hike.
