Deep Forest Experience in Rockport State Park

Saturday, January 20, 2018

Rockport State Park staff and volunteers will lead half-mile, 45-minute walks under a dense canopy of maple trees and old growth fir, cedar and hemlock. Many of the Rockport trees are more than 400 years old and top out at 250 feet. They include the 500-year old Grandmother Cedar.

During the walks, interpretive staff and guest speakers will discuss the ecosystems that keep forests healthy, including salmon-bearing streams, bird and animal scat and mycorrhizal fungi.

Participants are encouraged to dress for cold, wet, winter weather, including suitable footwear.

Visitors can also duck into the family-friendly Discovery Center, enjoy free refreshments and hot cocoa by the woodstove, explore interactive displays, watch nature videos, read books and make crafts.

Rockport will also offer Junior Ranger programs this winter, which combine age-appropriate opportunities for children to learn, play and protect natural spaces.
