We'll turn that expression, "Can't see the forest for the trees," into a positive phrase on this half-day hike at Prince William Forest Park in Triangle, VA. Trees in winter, their silhouettes revealing a sculpturesque beauty, offer us a peek into the wonder of nature.
One of our members will show participants how to identify trees in winter by observing branching structure, bark, buds, leaf scars, persistent and fallen fruit and leaves, aromatic twigs, and habitat.
Plan on a moderate hike of about five miles, and bring your binoculars in case we hear the laughing call of the pileated woodpecker or spy a red-bellied woodpecker.
This free event is open to members and non-members of Women Outdoors
Mid-Atlantic. Non-members are invited to join us on two events before we ask
you to join Women Outdoors. Prince William Forest Park charges an entrance fee of $5 per vehicle.
Please register no later than 5:00 p.m., Sunday, January 17, and include a
telephone number in case of last minute changes. Thanks.
