Join us for an exploration of the landscape at Johnston Mill!

We will meander through the various habitats of Johnston Mill Nature Preserve and explore the landscape as a group. Through plant identification, we will learn together and gain a better understanding of our natural surroundings and the biomes we hike through. This is an introductory to plant ID hike, focusing greatly on tree ID through bark and foliage.

This will be a moderate 2.5 mile hike with decent topographical change. Trail features include several small bridges and erosion prevention steps that can be difficult for some visitors to traverse. This is a free event, but preregistration is required.
