Guided Nature Tour – Willow Point Trailhead

November 17, 2018 | 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

It’s Fall y’all!! Join us for an autumn jaunt where we will note the changing of the seasons. Changes are happening everywhere as the animals and plants of Russell Forest prepare for lower temperatures. We will spend time learning about how the forest changes into its autumn wardrobe and discover the amazing features that allow this transition to happen. Impromptu discoveries always abound as we spend time in this outdoor classroom. Learn while you exercise!

Appropriate for participants ages 5 – 105.

 Registration is required for this tour because there is a $10 fee for this program. No charge for children under 10. Please contact Naturalist Marianne at 256-496-2710 to inquire and to register.
