CANCELLED – Ecology Hike with Matt Shaw
December 2 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
(Moderate / Around 2 hours / About 2 miles) Join naturalist Matt Shaw for a look at the early winter ecosystems of the Chapman Mountain Nature Preserve. This hike will start at the pavilion and cover parts of the Moonshine, Terry, and Whole Planet trails, making for a relatively easy walk. Plan to stop, look, and discuss what there is to see. Matt will talk about winter plants and tree identification as well as the “big picture” of what’s going on ecologically.
