Meets in Lost Mountain Parking lot.
The Emerald Ash borer beetle has decimated ash trees along the Blue Ridge Mountains (including Sky Meadows State Park) leaving few seed-producing trees and endangering forest ecosystems. Park conservation efforts bring hope that live, seed producing ash trees will continue to propagate, thus creating future generations in our forests.
Join park rangers and volunteer Master Naturalists as we assess and monitor the health of various Ash tree groves located throughout the park. Team up with a survey crew assigned to different park trails. Feel proud knowing you have contributed to preserving Sky Meadows Ash tree population for future generations.
No experience is required. Round trip hike distances range from 5 to 7 miles over rolling terrain. Please dress for the weather, be sure to wear sturdy hiking boots and bring water, lunch, bug spray and sun screen.
