Field Trip, Sunday, September 10, 2017: Big Woods, Hueston Woods State Park

The Big Woods area of Hueston Woods State Park is a tiny remnant of the beech-maple forest that once stretched in a broad band from southwestern Ohio to its northeastern corner. This forest type is dominated by the ghostly gray trunks of beech trees along with varying proportions of sugar maple, red and white oaks, and white ash. A map of Hueston Woods can be found at https://parks.ohiodnr.gov/Portals/parks/PDFs/parks/Maps/Hueston_Woods/huestonwoodsparkmap.pdf. Horticulturist Dick Munson will lead us on a visit to this old grown forest within Hueston Woods. The group will meet at 8:30 a.m. at the Big Woods Parking Area (straight ahead from the Brown Road park entrance). The guided walk will conclude by around noon. Pack a lunch if desired and bring binoculars if possible.
