About this outing
Stone walls, wolf trees, pits and mounds - the landscape is full of clues to its history when you know how to read it. Explore Valentino Family Community Forest with ecologist Tom Wessels, and learn the art of "forest forensics." You'll see the forest in a new way after this outing. 

What to expect & what to bring
This outing will include approximately two hours of walking in the woods over moderate terrain. There will be some periods of standing and stopping. Please bring water and a snack and wear weather-appropriate layers and footwear.
