Join Herbarium Director Prof. Jon Evans for a foray into Shakerag Hollow to observe the forest in winter and look for early signs of spring. Wintertime exposes the “bones” of the forest — deciduous trees are leafless, and herbaceous plants are almost out of sight. In addition to woody plants, there will be hardy ferns and possibly the first signs of spring — hepatica, toothwort, pepper & salt — popping up trailside. Meet at Green’s View at 1 PM, Sunday, Feb. 12, for this moderate-to-strenuous walk that may include a steep, rocky section of the trail. Come prepared for muddy, wet, icy, and/or rocky conditions.
