?The walk will be on Trail 7, first down through a wetland and stream area, then to the upper woodlands. Attendees should be prepared for traversing a wet and muddy area, and for hiking some steep slopes. The walk will be 1-½ to 2 hours, and will proceed rain or shine.

“Terrific Trees” is part of the Second Sunday Nature Exploration series at Ouabache Trails Park. Walks are free and no registration is required. All ages are welcome and families encouraged.
