Tree Identification Hike with Callie Schweitzer Blevins Gap
April 28 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Our newest trails on Blevins Gap have a variety of trees to explore! Sweetgum? Chittamwood? Maple? You’ll know the difference after an afternoon learning how to identify some of our native species with Forester Callie Schweitzer. (2 hours/ Moderate to Difficult (due to elevation changes) / 1.5 miles)
Location: Blevins Gap Nature Preserve (Walsingham Trailhead) – From Cecil Ashburn headed east toward Hampton Cove, turn left at Donegal Drive then left onto Walsingham. Park on left side of the road near the trailhead.
