October 5th: Guided Tree Walk on the Oklawaha
On Saturday, October 5, at 10 AM, a Guided Tree Walk Along the Oklawaha Greenway will focus on identifying and understanding trees, especially those native to the area. The program is open to the public at no charge. Meet at Patton Park in the circular pavilion near the basketball courts. The walk will take about 90 minutes, returning to Patton Park. The hike will be held rain or shine. The program is co-sponsored by Hendersonville Tree Board and Friends of the Oklawaha Greenway.
Mark Madsen, a member of the Tree Board and an ISA Certified Arborist, will lead the walk. The tour will start by looking at trees in Patton Park that are suitable for home gardens and then move on to look at many species of native trees in the wetland forest along Mud Creek.
