WILLOW POINT TRAILHEAD
JANUARY 11, 2020
2 PM – 5 PM
Join our Naturalist, Marianne Hudson, for an educational jaunt into the winter forest. The lifestyles of some Russell Forest residents change pace in the winter, but you’ll be surprised at the signs of life everywhere. Find out who is dormant and who is dynamic: cold weather won’t slow them down! We will search for signs of increasing activity while the day warms. We will especially be searching for signs of White-tailed Deer activity. This energetic hike is the perfect way to kick-start your standard New Year’s resolutions of exercising and appreciating the beauty that surrounds you. Appropriate for all ages! (5 – 105)
There is a $10 fee for this program. Please contact our Naturalist at 256-496-2710 to inquire and to register in advance.
We do recommend that you have a moderate fitness level and are able to stand or walk for at least two hours. Walking pace will be relaxed and there will be frequent stops. Comfortable, seasonally appropriate (check the forecast!) clothing and shoes are advised. You also might want to bring bottled water and possibly sunscreen. Binoculars and cameras are welcome. Keep in mind, there are no bathrooms on the Forest Trails.
