Identify trees, nuts, and beautiful fall wildflowers along the Chattahoochee River and on higher ridges. Learn to read the flood plain and ridge landscapes by observing the plants that grow there. What forces shaped the habitats we walk through today? What role does forest intelligence play in supporting a healthy forest?
Kathryn Kolb, Director of EcoAddendum, will lead a relaxed walk down a wooded trail, along the Chattahoochee River, and along the ridges. There are several strenuous, up-hill sections. This 2- to 3-mile, easy to moderate hike is at West Palisades/ Akers Mill.
Ages 10 and up
Please no dogs.
There are restrooms at the river.
