Autumn is a fantastic time to study our native trees and shrubs. When the camouflage of leaves disappears, the true silhouette of a plant is revealed. If you enjoy autumn hikes and always wondered what you see along the way, then join Volunteer Master Naturalist Joe Alvarez for this informative, fun program. This walk is free and perfect for all ages. As always, dress for the weather. Heavy rain cancels the event. After the walk, the public is invited to warm up in the newly-opened Nature Store at Two Mile. Please meet at the Visitors Contact Station at the Two Mile Beach Unit of Cape May National Wildlife Refuge. For more information or directions, please call 609-513-9349.
