Family Program: Giants of the Forest

Families are welcome to a special outdoor program on Saturday, March 20 focused on the giants of our forest – massive oak trees that make their leafy neighbors look tiny!

We’ll learn about ways in which a tree’s age can be calculated, and measure several battlefield trees to estimate their age. We’ll talk about what these trees may have been witness to on the battlefield and what was happening in Culpeper County as the trees grew.

Participation numbers are limited and pre-registration is required so that social distancing can be maintained. Please email [email protected] to reserve your family’s spot (and tree!).

Program date and time: March 20, 10:00 – 11:30 am.

Program meets at 9465 General Winder Road, Rapidan.

This program will be rescheduled to a later date in the event of inclement weather.
