Tree Walk: Living History at James Monroe’s Highland in the Fall

Friday, September 21 2018

Tree Stewards will lead a free 90-minute walk at James Monroe’s historic Highland property from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.. 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 fall using their leaves, bark, nuts, and many other features as well as how Highland trees and tree-ring dating have contributed to historical interpretation. Limit 25 people. Registration is required (click link): https://goo.gl/forms/LnT3S2WnMDvIIID53
