Hiking & Nature Club Begins an Adventurous New School Year

The UHSG Hiking and Nature Club kicked off the 2017/2018 school year with a hike around Potzberg Wildpark.

We hiked the Grosser Rundweg, which is a loop that circles around through forested areas and farmland.  There were some excellent views along the route.

Our nature study focus for this meeting was trees.  We had fun trying to identify the trees we saw along our hike, using some leaf identification sheets to help us out.

We found a LOT of blackberries, and even some elderberries.  These made for a tasty snack.

Our hike was close to five miles long, so we were all ready for a rest by the end.
