Join us for a 3 hour urban tree identification hike along Shoal Creek! During the 3.5 mile hike, participants will learn basic tree identification principles, practice identifying trees common to Central Texas and discuss characteristics and growth requirements of each of the identified trees. Specimens along the hike will feature a QR code so that you can look up the ecosystem services of that particular tree at the The Great Texas Tree Roundup website. At the end of the hike, there will be a short quiz and a prize for the keenest tree nut.
Refreshments and a laminated field guide to Native Trees of Central Texas are included in the cost of the hike. There are still several spots available, so please register today! We will meet at the picnic benches in Pease Park at the intersection of Parkway & Kingsbury, 78703 (from N. Lamar, go west on Enfield and take a right onto Parkway). If you’d like to register the morning of the hike, please arrive a few minutes early – we’ll accept payment by cash, check or credit card.
Please bring: sun protection, water bottle and a notepad/pencil if you’d like to take notes.
We’ll provide: water, granola bars & fruit, mini TreeFolks backpack to carry your things in, laminated Tree I.D. guides
