February 4 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am EST

vernal witchhazel Hamamelis vernalis 'Purpurea'
‘Purpurea’ vernal witchhazel on the Sun and Shade Trail

Tour revitalized woodlands along the Sun and Shade Loop with Kelly Vowels, Research Coordinator at Bernheim Forest.

Invasive species can cause extinction of plants and animals, reducing biodiversity, and alteration of ecosystem. Over 40% of rare species are threatened by invasive species, and cost billions of dollars to control.

On this hike learn about the origins of invasive species, as well as their impact on native plants and animals and their habitats. Hikers will also learn how to identify plants, both native and nonnative, during winter months.

Weather appropriate clothing and sturdy boots are recommended. Hike will meet at the Visitor Center and walk across the Big Prairie to the Sun and Shade Loop.

Bernheim members $10; non-members $15

Registration required by 4 p.m. the day prior to the program. Call (502) 955-8512 or click on the button below to register. Space is limited.
