Topics include City Park and forest history, tree identification, local native and invasive species and their impacts, habitats, and organisms, the Park’s living lagoon system, and the benefits of natural spaces, especially in urban areas.
We will be walking on mulched trails, not more than a mile in length. Physical distancing will be required. Recommended: binoculars, closed-toed shoes, bug spray, refillable water bottle. Tour size is limited to 25 people.
