Celebrating Winter Trees and Wildlife
Saturday, January 10
Time: 2–3:30 p.m.
Fee: $5 per family
For all ages
Many animals such as birds are quite active in the winter, whereas most of our trees are in a dormant state preparing for a busy year of growth ahead. Take a hike along the Trail to learn how trees and animals not only survive, but thrive during the cold winter months. Test your observation skills with a winter scavenger hunt. Wear good walking shoes and dress for the weather. Meet at the New Hill Parking Area, 1309 New Hill-Olive Chapel Road in Apex.
Trail Treks Series: Winter Weeds
Thursday, January 22
Time: 3–4 p.m.
Fee: $5 per family
For all ages
The brown plants of winter are still very important to many creatures along the Trail. As we walk and investigate the winter weeds, we will search for insect eggs and other life cycle stages dependent on the plants of winter. Meet at the New Hill Parking Area, 1309 New Hill-Olive Chapel Road in Apex.
