ROKEBY CENTURY TREES: Guided Hike with Naturalist Jacob Holzberg-Pill
Saturday Octoer 14 11am – 1pm
Join Senior Naturalist Jacob Holzberg-Pill at Rokeby Museum on a nature hike to massive oak trees, each well over 100 years old. These trees provided shade to otherwise open fields long before new growth filled in the surrounding areas. Learn about how large trees survive and prosper, how the environment affects them, and how they benefit the environment. Participants will help to take critical measurements (circumference, height, crown width) of the trees for the Vermont Big Tree registry. If time permits, we’ll stop by some of the large white pines and shag bark hickories as well.
Free to members and included in the price of admission, or $5 program only.
