Date: Saturday, October 7, 2017 from 12:00 PM to 3:30 PM


Join naturalist Ed Harrison for an in-depth tour of the “old farm trail” that travels through some 260 years of cultural and natural history. Participants explore the beauty of fall - the seeds and fall wildflowers - and learn of the positive effects of the Garden’s intense management for both field and forest on the Reserve. There is a short hike off trail into the Shagbark Hickory Forest. Wear sturdy footwear and bring a walking stick (if you use one) and water. Meet at the NCBG Visitor Parking Lot gazebo to drive to the location. Fee: $22 (NCBG Members $20)
