Jim Earnest and Ken O’Dell will give a one hour tour of one of the Beautiful Natural Trails at the Overland Park Arboretum. The Arboretum has 140 acres of naturally planted woodlands with rocky bluffs, creeks, bottomlands, and hillsides. We will see most of the 50 species of trees that grow naturally at the Arboretum. These woodlands have several trees that are not frequently seen in this area including, basswood, coffee trees, hop hornbeam, yellow buckeye as well as the hickories, giant oaks, thousands of pawpaws, bladdernut, native hazelnut, prickly ash and rough-leaf dogwood. We will tour one of the seven woodland trails and will tour the other trails at other times.
