Twenty Trees Guided Hike 11 am – Wild plum, white oak, blue ash, black walnut, and redbud are just a few of the many trees found in the forests of Franklin County.

Nature Explorers’ Art Scavenger Hunt Hike 1 pm – Jennifer Palmer, artist and Executive Director of Woods and Waters Land Trust, will be leading this hike on the new “family-friendly” trail.
