Learn how to identify our native deciduous trees while enjoying a beautiful fall hike through Reed-Turner Woodland. The diverse habitat of this Illinois State Nature Preserve contains an oak/hickory woodland, flood-plain forest, wooded ravine, and restored wetland. You will learn how to identify trees not only by their leaves, but also by bark, seed, and habitat. You will learn tree identification basics, then head outside to hike the preserve's trails and practice identifying trees. Please dress for the weather.
