Have you ever wondered how to identify trees when there are no leaves? Join us for an educational hike to explore ways to identify trees in winter — such as examining bark patterns, community types, the form of the tree, and more. Botanist and avid naturalist Luke Cannon will accompany us on our hike and provide hikers with tips and skills for identifying deciduous trees in winter. This 2.5 mile hike will take place in Montreat Wilderness, on which SAHC holds a 2,460-acre conservation easement!
