Second Sunday Tree Walk

Join us for a guided tour of the Forestry Board's tree walks in one of our beautiful downtown locations. Hopefully, we'll have lovely fall weather and the leaves will be showing their colors, as well. Learn how to identify some common local trees and hear fun facts about each tree on the tour with one of the Board's expert guides. We encourage you to ask questions and satisfy your curiosity about all our beautiful local trees.


Learn about nature while donating to our fundraiser. All donations to the Forestry Board are dedicated to continue sponsorship of Frederick County High School students’ participation in the annual Natural Resources Career Camp.
