Tree ID Walk
Mariton Wildlife Sanctuary | Sun, October 22, 2017, 1:00pm - 4:00pm
Oak, maple, birch, or beech? Each species offers clues to its identity, even after leaves have fallen. We’ll examine bark, tree size, and overall shape to identify the species and admire their form. Diverse woodlands thrive at Mariton Wildlife Sanctuary, providing plenty of trees for us to ID!
Preserve Manager Tim Burris guides a leisurely paced walk, and shares vast knowledge of trees gleaned from years of experience caring for this 200-acre property in Northampton County.
Mariton is perched on the steep slopes of Bougher Hill overlooking the scenic Delaware River. A highlight of the preserve’s trail system is the River Lookout Trail, with an overlook of both the Delaware Canal and the Delaware River 300 feet below.
Mariton’s Nature Center includes a library, meeting space, and ADA restrooms, and is open by prior arrangement.
What to wear:
- Dress for the season and wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes
- Long pants and long-sleeved shirt, to protect you from poison ivy and brambles
- Bug spray and hat are suggested
Please leave your four-legged friends at home.
