Naturalist Walk & Talk
Chris McNichol, who recently completed the exciting new Pennsylvania Master Naturalist program, will show us the park through his eyes. Animal tracks, early-blooming plants, wildlife… who knows what we will find! Chris is a wealth of information on many topics- he teaches boat building, survival skills, rocketry, woodworking, fire starting, foraging, and mechanics at Open Connections, a local homeschool resource center! A man of many hats, Chris co-founded the local CSA Red Hill Farm, and if you remember the whimsical Pink Elephant tree house from Tyler Arboretum’s first Totally Terrific Treehouse exhibit in 2008, Chris built that! He also makes creations out of sustainably harvested and salvaged wood for Timber & Co.
Snow or shine!
As always, kids are welcome!
Estimated time: 2 hours
Be prepared for steep hills, and uneven (possibly wet) terrain: wear your hiking shoes, and bring a hiking pole if you use one… and of course binoculars!
