Late Autumn Tree Walk at Theodore Roosevelt Island (Guided Walk — Audubon Naturalist Society)
December 2, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm EST$35 – $49
Join long-time ANS field trip leader and author of the award-winning book, Finding Solace at Theodore Roosevelt Island, and several other nature books, for a seasonal exploration of this 90-acre island in the Potomac River which serves as a fitting memorial to our conservationist and naturalist 26th President—and Audubon Naturalist Society member. This late fall tree walk will take you deep into the island, where swamp and tidal inlet can be explored by boardwalk as willows, bald cypresses and cattails frame views of the city behind it. In addition to sharing her knowledge and love of the Island’s trees, Melanie will share details of this National Park’s fascinating history. Expect a flat walk of nearly two miles at a leisurely pace. Our circuit walk will traverse natural surface trails as well as boardwalk, both of which may be muddy and/or slippery. WAITLIST OPEN.
