The North Woods Stewards met with parents, siblings, and students for a tour on Saturday, October 15th for Celebration Weekend. It was the perfect Fall Day for a tour of the North Woods – parents admired the College’s colorful forest. Visitors came from all parts of the country and were of all ages – including younger siblings and (leashed) dogs. Tour guests saw hidden Carriage Trails and shagbark hickory trees along the Green Trail, learned the reason for the patch of coniferous trees on the Blue Trail (Hint: it has to do with the underlying geology and soil type), spotted red efts and poison ivy along the Red Trail, and discovered a geologic anomaly on the Spirit Trail (but then again, how could you miss WHALE Rock on that trail?!).
Stay tuned for more updates on North Woods happenings. There’s been quite a lot buzzing in the Woods these days!
