Event Description: 

Put your walking shoes on and join tree expert and CFPA Ramble Guide Lucy Meigs, of Everyone Outside, for a walk to one of the highest points in Middletown to enjoy the trees and beautiful fall color. The one-mile walk will be geared towards families (children approx. 8 years & up) and anyone interested in learning about trees.

Would you like to find the clues (leaves, nuts, bark, twigs,buds) you can use to better understand our leafy neighbors? Come celebrate the beauty of trees in the fall and learn the basics about tree identification and ecology. We will loop around the beautiful Indian Hill Cemetery to the top of the hill that is one of the highest outlooks in Middletown region overlooking the majestic Connecticut River Valley including the Arrigoni Bridge and much of Middletown. As part of a grant from the Rockfall Foundation, a variety of trees at Indian Hill now have signs with information about the tree.
