T1 George Washington's Mount Vernon

Friday, September 25, 2015

This is a moderately active Ed-Venture meaning there will be lots of walking. The trails are well-traveled. Please wear appropriate gear. Nate Miller will point out native fall flora and explain their cultural, medicinal and culinary uses, and their benefits to wildlife. Also the importance of indigenous species versus introduced non-native species. We will critique two different ecosystems: a tallgrass meadow situation with a mix of northern and southern species and a high mountain peak with northern hardwood forests and Red Spruce and cliffside plants.

Class is limited to 20 participants. This program is approved for Advanced Training for the Headwaters Chapter of the Virginia Master Naturalist Program.

Bring a Senior Golden Pass, if you have one. LLI will also furnish a pass.
