Event Description

(rescheduled from Saturday, October 30th) Sunday, November 14 from 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm, Hiking Along in partnership with Neighbors of Northwest Branch will lead a family hike on the Rachel Carson Greenway Trail, south of Burnt Mills. The group will meet in the parking lot adjacent to the Trader Joe’s Plaza and will hike two miles out and back to the 495 overpass. On the return, children will have the opportunity to rock scramble. While on the hike, families will learn about the ecosystem of a deciduous forest in the Washington area. They will understand and follow a food web in the forest and what happens when a species is threatened or endangered. Children will learn about and provide solutions to the human impact on a forest food web. This hike is great for children 5+ years of age but all are welcome. The trail is not jogging stroller passable; however, a few backpacks can be provided for young children. Join the hike, see the forest colors, and learn about its animals!


El sábado 30 de octubre th de 9:00 a.m. a 12:00 pm, Hiking Along conducirá una caminata familiar en el Camino Verde de Rachel Carson (al sur de Burnt Mills) en colaboración con el Servicio de vecinos de Northwest Branch. El grupo se reunirá en el lote de estacionamiento adyacente a la Plaza del mercado Trader Joe. Caminaremos dos millas. En el retorno, los niños tendrán la oportunidad de jugar en una formación de rocas. Mientras que en la caminata, familias aprenderán sobre el ecosistema de un bosque de hoja caduco en el área de Washington. Aprenderán sobre enlaces naturales de alimentos en el bosque y lo que ocurre cuando una especie es amenazada o esta en peligro de extinción. Los niños aumentaran su conocimiento y ofrecerán soluciones para el impacto humano en la web de alimentación del bosque. Esta caminata es ideal para los niños de más de 5 años de edad, pero todos son bienvenidos. El camino no es condusible para andar cochecito; Sin embargo, habrán disponible mochilas para los niños pequeños. Acompáñenos en la caminata, vea los colores del bosque y aprenda acerca de los animales!
