Sunday, October 10th
Second Sunday Nature Walk
What kinds of connections can we find between what is well above us and what is under our feet? During this month’s nature walk, Above and Below: the Canopy and the Floor, you will stop in different types of places- wet and dry, high and low, dense and sparse. You will observe what is over our heads in the canopy, as well as explore what is on the ground, and even under the forest floor litter, under and around old logs and stumps, and in the water. How do they affect one another? What animals and other organisms travel between the upper and lower reaches, and how do they tie them together. For more information, click HERE.
