Fall Guided Aspen Walk
October 15, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am
Spend your morning hiking in aspen stands!
On Saturday October 15th, SYRCL is hosting an Aspen Walk at 9:30 am along the Loney Meadow Interpretive Trail. On this roughly 2-mile hike led by SYRCL’s Forest Conservation Project Manager, Anne Marie Holt, participants will learn about SYRCL’s aspen restoration projects, the unique ecology of meadow-fringe aspen, and how to recreate near aspen stands respectfully and responsibly. The guided walk will start at the Loney Meadow Interpretive Trail parking lot/trailhead at 9:30 am and will wrap up by 11:30 am.
Bring along water, hiking boots, snacks, sunscreen, sunhat, warm layers, sunglasses, and anything else that will make you feel comfortable walking at 6,000 feet in elevation on an October day. The weather may be variable. Optional items to bring include a camera, binoculars, and field guides, as Loney Meadow is a habitat for many birds, shrubs, meadow vegetation, and wildlife in addition to the aspen stands.
