Senior High School Students in the Forest
Jessica Hart, the teacher in charge of the expedition to the Lower Chain of Wetlands in early November, was excited to see the fifty-five seniors from Uplift Hampton Preparatory Charter School walking the Trinity Forest Trails, learning how to water and soil sample and how to plant native species around the Wood Duck Pond at the Lower Chain of Wetlands.
Native Plants in the Trinity Corridor
The cool nights have already touched the trees in the Great Trinity Forest with colors of russet and gold. One of the brightest colors in the forest comes from Carolina snailseed and its long clusters of brilliant red fruit. Birds love the berries. The common name of the plant refers to the seed, which resembles a tiny snail shell. Don’t miss a chance to hike or bike on the Trinity Forest Trails and experience fall at the Trinity.
