Tree Walk in Simpson Park

Sunday, December 10 - 10:30 AM

Simpson Park is a unique little forest preservation in the lovely community of Esmont in Southern Albemarle County. December is a magical time of year to experience the forest and the diverse collection of hardwood and evergreen trees and shrubs in this park. Join Tree Stewards Sherri Fitzgerald and Becky Turner for this easy walk on a shaded gravel one mile path to learn to see and Identify trees without their leaves. You will discover how to recognize the unique bark between multiple species of white and red oaks. The size, shape and orientation of twigs and branches can assist you in easily differentiating between Hickory, Dogwood, and Redbud trees and more.

Please meet Sherri and Becky under the covered picnic area near the tennis courts. There is ample parking at the site and public restrooms are available.

The walk is free but is limited to 15 people (anyone under age 15 should be accompanied by an adult).  Please register through the Eventbrite link.
