How many biotic communities co-exist in this area, and how did they evolve into such an intricate mosaic? Discover this Preserve’s diversity with docents Jayita Bhojwani and Gerri Tiernan on a moderately-paced hike with about 450 feet of elevation change. You’ll make stops to observe changes in vegetation as you explore different habitats. Along the way, you’ll learn about the common species that call these habitats home, and how they have adapted to their unique environment.
