Fall/Winter Tree I.D. Program at Dayton's National Park
Huffman Prairie Flying Field Interpretive Center
All ages welcome!
Can you tell the difference between a maple tree and an oak tree when there are no leaves on the trees? Believe it or not, it's not that difficult if you know where to look and know the many clues: bark, shape, habitat, nuts, buds, and branch and twig structure.
Join a national park ranger to learn how to identify trees in the fall and winter. Wright Memorial Hill, across from the Huffman Prairie Flying Field Interpretive Center, has a variety of native trees including different types of oak, maple, hickory, locust, birch, beach, and ash.
This program is for folks of all ages, so bring the family. Also bring binoculars if you have them; we may spot some birds and other animals that are still active even though the weather is cool!
Meet at the Huffman Prairie Flying Field Interpretive Center located on Wright Brothers Hill, 2380 Memorial Road (for GPS location, enter the intersection of Kauffman Avenue and Skyline Drive), Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio, 45433

At our Summer Tree ID Program, several hikers could not find us. Perhaps this will help: The Interpretive Center is on Wright Brothers Hill, which overlooks Huffman Dam. From Springfield St/Route 444 Turn onto Kaufman Ave. Then turn right into the first driveway. Straight ahead you will see a closed entrance gate to WPAFB, but if you look a bit to the right you will see the entrance to Wright Brothers Hill. For more information, or if you get lost call [masked] or [masked]. Huffman Prairie Flying Field Interpretive Center is open daily from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm. Free admission.
