Tree Walk: Living History at James Monroe's Highland in Summer

Monday, July 09 2018

July 9, 2018, 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. (rescheduled from July 6 for weather)

Come celebrate the July 4th holiday week by joining this free 90-minute walk at James Monroe’s historic Highland property. Charlottesville Area Tree Stewards have been leading walks at Highland in each season. Highland’s open spaces afford vistas of mature ash, black walnut, maples, oaks, and other native trees. You will see a hemlock and towering white oak that date to Monroe’s time. Learn how to identify trees in the summer using leaves, bark, twigs, form, and many other features. Discover how Highland trees and tree-ring dating have contributed to historical interpretation. The event is free, but registration is required; attendance is limited to 25 people.
