Interpretive walk with Tom Wessels: Keyes Woods Preserve

August 26, 2022 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Tom Wessels

You won’t see the woods the same way again!

Join author and terrestrial ecologist Tom Wessels for an interpretive walk to explore the ecology, natural, and cultural history of Keyes Woods Preserve. Specifically, Tom will be interpreting the history of the woodlands — whether they were once open agricultural land, impacted by wind events, fires, or logging — as well as unique plant adaptations and interesting coevolved interrelationships among the woodland species we encounter.

How to register

Please register using the button below. Note: this is the second of three interpretive walks with Tom on the same date. We anticipate high demand for these programs, so we ask that people register for only one. The first walk is at Plummer Point Preserve at 10:00 AM and the third is at Crooked Farm Preserve at 3:00 PM.
