New Tree Walk at Darden Towe Park



On Saturday, July 13, Kathy Nepote and Allen Ingling led our newest tree walk. In a corner of Darden Towe Park and around the Lewis and Clark Exploratory Center, is a treasure trove of trees. Highlights include a wide range of native riparian trees, conifers, numerous ash trees exhibiting the progressive devastation of the emerald ash borer, a tulip tree grown from a seed of one of Thomas Jefferson’s, and 200-plus-year-old osage orange trees. The walk is an easy circuit on dirt trails down to and immediately around the Center. We will be repeating this walk later in the year and will post the dates on our calendar as they are scheduled. Come see what it’s all about!
