Event description
Learn to identify native trees while enjoying fall colors at their best!

About this event

The last week of October is considered “Peak Week” for fall color in Piedmont North Carolina. Experience autumn at its best by joining Phyllis Smith, Natural Resources Agent for N.C. Cooperative Extension, Forsyth County Center, and Adam Tran, Extension Master Gardener Volunteer, on a short guided hike through a hardwood forest to observe the wonderful diversity of Piedmont NC native hardwood trees and the rich variety of shapes and colors they offer each fall. Learn about the chemical changes and environmental conditions that work together to produce a unique show each year, and discover how leaf shapes and colors can be used for tree identification. We’ll also discuss how fall trees benefit wildlife through the production of nuts and berries.

We’ll start our journey at Forsyth County’s Tanglewood Park Arboretum, and then wind our way through an adjacent gently sloping Nature Trail. The trail is unpaved and rated easy to intermediate. We will walk approximately ½ mile roundtrip, with a break at the halfway point. Participants should wear closed-toed hiking boots or sneakers and bring their own water bottles.

This is a FREE event!

Sign up soon! Registration is limited to allow social distancing. Sorry, no pets allowed.
