Fall Foliage Walk by Henry and Betty Horn

An upcoming walk of note:

Kingston Greenways Association Fall Foliage Walk
Saturday, October 15, 2011 -  2:00 pm at Mapleton Preserve/D&R Canal State Park headquarters – 145 Mapleton Road, Kingston

Naturalists Henry and Betty Horn will lead the walk.  Both Betty and Henry are enthusiastic teachers and will share their expertise on a walk that focuses on trees (Henry), flowers (Betty) and whatever other discoveries are made during this leisurely hike.

Betty is an avid botanist with an intimate knowledge of our local wildflowers.  She has served as Curator of the Biological Collections at the Princeton University Museum of Natural History since 1978.  Henry, now Professor Emeritus, has taught in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Princeton since 1966, and is well known for his professional enthusiasm and dedication.  He has wide-ranging interests in natural history, a passion to understand our local environment and its context, and a deep fascination with tree ecology.

With any luck, the fall foliage will be in full display.  If desired, bring binoculars or tree or wildflower identification books.  Don’t forget to wear sensible shoes, and dress for the weather.  

The meeting is free and open to the public.
