Beginning Sept. 22 the Snohomish Parks Foundation will offer four guided walking tours to view and learn about interesting trees in the Historic District of Snohomish.
Groups will be led by tree experts who will use the new “Trees of Snohomish Walking Guide” brochure, soon to be released for self-guided walking tours.
Many of these featured trees were planted at the same time the homes in the Historic District were built more than 100 years ago. One sugar maple on the tour was planted by the town’s first mail carrier. It came from a tree in his Michigan hometown.
Tours generally take a little more than an hour and are suitable for walkers of all ages.
The evening tours will start at Le Gourmet Depot, 110 Cedar St. Morning tours will start at the Crepe Escape Coffee shop next door. Wear comfortable walking shoes and weather-appropriate clothing.
Tours are 6 to 8 p.m. Sept. 22, 10 a.m. to noon Sept. 23, 10 a.m. to noon Sept. 25, and 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 1.
A minimum $10 donation to the foundation is requested, collected the day of the tour (no credit cards).
