Autumn is a time of great seasonal change. This hike is located at the Arboretum on a flat trail that accommodates those with limited mobility who walk with support. It is not appropriate for wheelchairs. The slow and steady hike offers participants a chance to walk with two experienced naturalists and observe flora, especially with evidence of seed dispersal and fruits, as well as identify animal species seen or heard on the trail.

Participants should wear clothing appropriate for the weather and good hiking shoes. Participants will be notified in advance on meeting location at the Arboretum.

Marilyn Kolton and Louis Dwarshuis are certified Blue Ridge Naturalists who have taught a variety of courses on field birding and wildflower identification. Both are past presidents of Audubon societies. Both have led many interpretative nature hikes.

*Registrants will be sent a reminder email the day before with the meeting location, current safety guidelines and additional details.


***Upon registration, participants will be asked to identify if they are seeking certificate credit through Arboretum certificate of merit programs or NC Environmental Education. Responses will prompt further communication regarding requirements and reporting for credit.
