Exploring Old-growth Forests: A Hike at Forest Lodge

July 20, 2019
Join author and naturalist John Bates for an intimate hike at the Forest Lodge property. Forest Lodge retains a relatively undisturbed old-growth hemlock-hardwood forest situated along Lake Namekagon shoreline. Hemlock regeneration is exceptional in places—at times one can walk through tunnels of overhanging young hemlock branches. We’ll walk slowly, stop and talk frequently, and thoroughly enjoy the remarkable beauty of this remnant of northern Wisconsin’s lost landscape. Meet outside the Gatehouse of the Forest Lodge estate at 1:30 p.m. and return by 4:00. Space is limited.
