Trees have intricate relationships with their environment as well as other living plants, animals, and fungi. This hike will highlight the various relationships and benefits trees provide, from hostplants and nest sites to stream health and human health. Join us on a hike through the forest to Elk Lick Creek to learn about these connections and deepen your own relationship with trees.
Hike Leader: Beverly James
Hike Distance: 3 miles; moderate to difficult due to steep, uneven terrain and potentially slick surfaces
Optional: hiking poles, snack, camera
COVID-19 SAFETY PRECAUTIONS AND GUIDELINES UPDATE: As of Tuesday, April 27th, the state of Kentucky as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has updated guidelines for small outdoor gatherings. Kentucky no longer requires a mask be worn outdoors for events of fewer than 1000 people. The CDC states the risk of COVID-19 spread is low in outdoor settings, but also continues to recommend masks in settings where physical distance cannot be maintained.
In response to the current guidance, Floracliff will not require fully-vaccinated individuals to wear masks during outdoor programs as long as adequate physical distance (6-feet) can be maintained between others outside of one’s household/pod. Floracliff continues to recommend unvaccinated individuals wear a mask throughout all programs, especially when adequate physical distance cannot be maintained between others outside of one’s household/pod.
All program participants and Floracliff representatives, both fully-vaccinated and unvaccinated, should have a mask available during programs in the case that adequate physical distance cannot be maintained. We are happy to provide one to you if necessary.
*These guidelines are subject to change at any time according to current state and CDC guidance.
