Ash Brook Reservation Tour to Focus on Leaf Collecting and Tree Identification on Sat, Nov. 11


SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- Visitors can come for a fun and informative “Let’s Go Leafing!” walk along Ash Brook Reservation’s mysteriously-named Horse Hobble Hill on Saturday, Nov. 11, at 2:00 p.m. The hill is still decorated above and below with bright yellow, deep scarlet, and varying shades of brown autumn leaves. Marc Grobman, Ash Brook Reservation’s trail steward, will lead the tour.

The group will learn how to spot signs of animals and identify plants used to flavor foods. Next, participants can search for differently-shaped leaves to bring back to a table and learn what tree species they came from. If they wish, they can take their favorite leaf finds home to flatten and tack to a wall or bulletin board to make an interesting and educational decoration.

Participants should dress in shoes and long pants that can get a bit dirty. Those who want to gather leaves should bring a paper bag and decide if they will want to bring work gloves. There are no charges or registration requirements to join the tour.
