This will be the first hike at this newly protected nature preserve! Hikers will meet at 10:00 a.m. to begin the hike. Hikers will explore this new preserve and learn about the Hemlock which is a relict that is considered an ecological gem that is unique to this area and is considered an imperiled habitat worldwide. These Hemlock trees grow to 150 – 200 years old.
RSVPs are appreciated so that we have enough hike leaders available.
