The Prescott area is known for its evergreen landscape of shrub and woodland biotic communities. But along creeks and drainages, there are ribbons of gold in autumn. Join the Prescott Chapter of the Native Plant Society on a hike along Aspen Creek to enjoy the fall colors. We will discuss different adaptive strategies of trees and why some lose their leaves in the winter while most do not. Come along to explore the autumnal changes!
Meet at the Aspen Creek Trailhead at 8:30am
From White Spar Road, turn right onto Copper Basin Road. Drive along Copper Basin Road for 4.6 miles (the road will turn to dirt, but is maintained well enough for a sedan) to the Aspen Creek Trailhead to the right.
We’ll walk until 11-ish, depending on the group’s consensus.
