The Winter Tree Walk is “on” as planned, 1:00pm to 3:00pm tomorrow, February 18. Click here for directions and details.
Expect overcast skies and temperatures 43-45 degrees with some wind and a slight chance of rain. It will feel like 38-40 degrees.
Dress warmly. Wear boots. Most of our route is sidewalk or crushed gravel but be prepared for one 60-foot muddy stretch. (Route is shown above in red. See map key below.) Feel free to bring a hiking stick. I’m bringing mine for walking and for pointing out trees.
Bring quarters for parking! Parking rates are $0.25 for 7.5 minutes = $2.00/hour. For 2 hours you’ll need at least 16 quarters. More is better. Note: The white laminated “No Parking” signs attached to the meters ask you not to park from 5:00am – 9:00am because of CMU buggy practice. Our outing is 4 hours after the “no parking” time, so don’t worry.
Post a comment if you have a question (comments send me email) or call me at 412-622-6558. I’ll be checking for comments & messages until 1:00pm on Saturday.
See you tomorrow.
