The resource forester with the Missouri Department of Conservation will lead a Nature Walk at 10 a.m. Saturday March 23 in Riverview Park.

Do the trees in Riverview Park all look alike during the winter? If making sense of trees seems daunting with the leaves, it can seem downright impossible without them.

Kyle Monroe, resource forester with the Missouri Department of Conservation, will teach techniques for identifying trees in winter. 

The Nature Walk will be 10 a.m. Saturday March 23 at the River Road Trail. Monroe said he will talk about the many benefits of trees.  “We’ll talk about how those trees support wildlife and what food sources they provide,” he said.

Monroe will lead a group on an easy hike down the paved River Road Trail in Hannibal’s Riverview Park. The 103-year-old park with 465 acres of forested land is on the National Register for Historic Places.

Participants must sign up for the event by calling the Hannibal Parks & Recreation office at 221-0154 or by emailing mlrichards@hannibal-mo.gov.
