Fall Forest Hike

September 15 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

With fall on the way, the appearance of trees changes significantly and identifying them can be tricky – unless you know your bark, berries & nuts. Join us to celebrate the change of season with a Fall Forest Walk on Saturday, September 15th from 1:00- 3:00pm at the Schurmeier Teaching Forest. This free event will be led by expert staff and volunteers from JDCF who will identify native trees, wildflowers, and berries on an approximately 1.5 mile hike through the forest. The terrain is suitable for people of all ages making the walk an event the entire family can enjoy. Appropriate footwear is recommended!
To reach Schurmeier Forest, take HWY 20 to Derinda Road just east of downtown Elizabeth. Travel a short distance to Tower Road, turn right and follow to Reusch Road. Take a left on Reusch and drive 1 ½ miles to the parking lot on the right side of the road. The entrance to the forest is on the left.
