Coastal Rivers Conservation Trust naturalist Sarah Gladu will lead a hike at La Verna Preserve in Bristol from 10 a.m. to noon on Friday, Dec. 3.
In addition to its spectacular shoreline with sweeping views of Muscongus Bay, La Verna offers a variety of forest types along the trail, from upland oak and white pine to coastal spruce woods cushioned with moss. The pace will be leisurely, allowing plenty of time for discussion about nature observations along the way, with a focus on identifying trees in winter.
This program is free of charge, thanks to member support. Registration is required at coastalrivers.org/events.
