Forest Succession Hike

Tuesday, November 7 | 1:00pm – 2:00pm

Forests regenerate themselves after a major disturbance in successive stages. If an area is stripped of all the trees, “pioneer” species establish themselves quickly. They, in turn, are followed by other species, and ultimately a “climax” forest is attained where the species perpetuate themselves indefinitely unless a new disturbance occurs. We will read the landscape and validate what scientists did in the past to discover this ecological concept. Hike led by Don Quintenz. 

Registration is required. To register call 414-352-2880 x0.
