Yes, Road Trips Gardeners, there remains a tract of old-growth forest in New York City.

Now, granted, it’s in the Bronx — but you can explore the Thain Family Forest of the New York Botanical Garden during two upcoming Fall Forest Weekends, November 3 and 4, 2012, plus November 10 and 11, 2012. Hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Immerse yourself in the magnificent colors of fall foliage by participating in guided tours and watching tree-climbing demonstrations. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and seasonal attire.

Themed discovery walks of the Forest take place throughout the day:

11 a.m. — Birds of the Forest with Debbie Becker
12:30 p.m. — Natural History of the Thain Family Forest
1 p.m. — Forest Forays for Families
2:30 p.m. — Fall Foliage Tour
3 p.m. — Forest Ecology

The Thain Family Forest is the largest remnant of original forest that once covered most of New York City.
