Outing to Visit Spring Grove Cemetery, 2/25/12
Saturday, February 25, 2012 - Spring Grove Cemetery with Dick Munson. Spring Grove Cemetery is one of the premier arboretum cemeteries in the United States. It contains the final resting place of many local and national luminaries. Spring Grove contains numerous examples of some of the largest and rarest trees in North America and Spring Grove is a great birding site. The hike will involve some hills and perhaps even a bit of snow on the ground. A winter hike allow us to see many trees without their leaves, revealing their true magnificence in terms of shape, bark, and branching habit. Join us for a brisk and inspiring hike through a truly beautiful place. Dress warmly and wear good boots for warmth and traction. Meet on the southwest side of the old Oxford Wal-Mart parking lot at 8:00am to car pool or caravan.
