Guided Hike
December 23rd, 1pm
Evergreen Tree Id and Holiday Swag Making

Celebrate the Winter Solstice with CBEC!  Join our naturalists along a walk around our ponds stopping to identify common evergreen trees.  Learn some interesting folklore about each tree and discover adaptations that they have to endure the long, cold winters.  We will stop to trim the tree of some branches for making swags.  Swags are decorative bundles of Evergreen tied together with a festive bow to accent your home symbolizing the winter solstice celebration of life still thriving in the dark, cold times of winter!

Participants are encouraged to dress for weather and bring along a water bottle, small snack, and any pruning shears you may have for branch trimming.  Your welcome to bring your own bow but CBEC will provide bows and wire.  Duration is approximately 2 hours. Trips are subject to cancellation due to weather or low enrollment. Check-in and hike begin at the Visitor Center.

Cost is FREE to CBEC Members, $5 for Non Members
