CANCELED DUE TO WEATHER: Winter Tree Identification on Kessler Mountain
Time & Location
About The Event
WINTER WEATHER UPDATE! Friday night's forecast is a 70% chance of sleet and freezing rain, then the same chance of snow and sleet on Saturday with a high of 35. If the current forecast holds, we'll need to cancel the event. We will make a final decision on Thursday morning and will post an update here if we decide to cancel the event. Contact Jennifer at firstname.lastname@example.org for information.
Learn how to identify dormant trees by their bark, buds, and leaf scars! Jennifer Ogle and Eric Hunt of ANPS and Alan Edmondson of the Northwest Arkansas Land Trust will lead this educational tour of the trees on Kessler Mountain, along the wooded trails of the Kessler Outdoor Classroom. If time allows after the tour, we may also hike up the hill to Rock City to see some of the unique geological formations that occur there.
Meet in the lower parking area of the Old Ozark Mountain Smokehouse. The trail is rated as easy to moderate, and the trail loop is less than 1 mile long. The walk up to Rock City is rated as moderate to strenuous and is about 1.5 miles round trip. Bring water and snacks, and wear sturdy boots.
If you plan to attend, please RSVP to Jennifer at email@example.com.
