Saturday, March 31, 9:30 AM – 3 PM.(This trip is highly dependent on weather and snow conditions so date and time are tentative.) WRWA Members Only
County Forester Bill Guenther will lead a small group of 5-12 WRWA members on a tour of old-growth forest on a 60-acre property that was a gift to Leland & Gray High School. About 12-15 acres are stocked with big birches; the remainder is in spruce/fir and beaver flowage. At about noon, hikers will break for a picnic lunch at the campsite before continuing on to the birch stand with some tree trunks greater than three feet in diameter. This moderate-to-strenuous hike involves some bushwhacking in the remote area and requires both x-country skis for the road and snowshoes for the woods. Bring a bag lunch. Dress warmly and in layers.
