Do you marvel at the beauty of trees on Shenandoah Mountain? Do you want to learn more about how to identify different species of trees?
Adam Downing, Virginia Extension Agent for Forestry, will lead us through the forest around Hone Quarry and will teach us how to identify tree species typically found in our Central and Southern Appalachian forests. These forests have the greatest plant and tree diversity of any forests in the United States. They are home to numerous species of salamanders, birds, and mammals.
This walk in the woods will make use of simple identification tools & resources and our collective knowledge to introduce the names of some common trees in the area (and maybe an uncommon one or two as well) with ID tips and tricks shared along the way. This will be beginner level but experts are welcome!
We will park at Hone Quarry Picnic Area and walk 1-2 miles on the forest roads and trails nearby.
