Come join us for a walk in the forest, during which we will collect natural objects (leaves, flowers and such). Following the walk the found materials will be woven together to create individual tapestries for you to take home. Please bring a paper bag for collecting, a pair of scissors or clippers, and something to sit on. We will gather at 9 a.m., Saturday, September 29th at Northeast Penjajowoc Preserve on Kittredge Road, where the pavement ends. Grace Bartlett will be the facilitator.

Tree ID and Changing Colors Workshop
Join us for a tree ID walk while the brilliant fall colors are happening. Led by Dr. Steve Sader and Larry Beauregard, the walk may cover a little more than a mile and should take about an hour and a half to two hours. A handout sheet listing most of the trees, shrubs and common ground plants found will be provided. To aid in some of the identifications, binoculars are recommended and will be available to borrow if needed. Good walking/hiking shoes are recommended as parts of the trail contain exposed roots and rocks. The walk begins at 10 am. Meet at the Walden-Parke Preserve kiosk at the end of Tamarack Trail.
July 1 through August 31
