Winter Tree ID and hike at Strawberry Plains Audubon Center - there is a fee$

I will be departing the Arlington Visitors Center (12036 Arlington Trail) at 7am for carpool/caravan. Others can set up a meeting place/time or meet at SPAC at appropriate times. Hike starts at 8am, tree id program starts at 11am. If you just want to hike the grounds, there is a $3 fee, if you want to attend the Tree ID program it is $5 (includes hiking the grounds). PLEASE MAKE RESERVATIONS PER INFO BELOW... The hike will be in open fields that were bush hogged last fall - expect wet grass - but flat (5+ miles) and this before hiking a mile or two to identify trees. We will visit old sharecroppers houses and a couple of ponds. Bring water, snacks/lunch and your cameras.


Winter Tree I.D. When: Saturday, March 9th (11am)
Where: Strawberry Plains Audubon Ctr.
Cost: $5 per person

You might recognize an oak in the summer by its lobed leaves or a maple in the fall by its helicopter fruit, but how do you identify these same trees in the winter or early spring? Join ecologist Chad Pope, to learn how you can go beyond just leaves to learn how to identify trees. We'll be investigating other features like tree shape, bark characteristics, and more to help us recognize many of our common southern tree species.

Spaces limited, RSVP required. Contact
Andrea Schuhmann via email [masked] or call

    We hiked for several hours finding lots of interesting things along the trail and exploring the sharecroppers houses. We were headed for the beaver pond, but didn't make it because we found so many facinating things. Then we spent about four hours out identifying trees and other plants. A great day in a great place!
