Join our Environmental Educator at Black Rock forest, Aaron Culotta, on a hike through Black Rock Forest to learn how wildlife make their final preparations for winter. December is a time of transition for wildlife and on this hike, Aaron will discuss habitats along the trailsand provide insights into the lives of some species that inhabit our Forest as they prepare for 90 days of cold and dark. This is a moderate 2-3 mile hike that is family friendly so both adults and children are welcome.

Instructions:  We recommend dressing in layers to account for varying temperatures throughout the day. Hiking boots are critical for wet/muddy trail conditions during the winter. Bring drinking water and a snack if desired, insect and tick repellent are recommended. An email will be sent to registered participants prior to the hike with parking information and additional arrival details.

This hike is free to Friends of the Forest (annual supporters); or $10/per person. Space is limited and registration and a signed waiver are required. To become a Friend of the Forest or to make a payment for this hike, please visit our donation page.
