Programs at the Cliffs

On Sunday at 2 p.m., a ranger will lead a hike and teach about identifying characteristics of about 20 different species of trees that grow at the Cliffs and in the Goldsboro area. Participants should meet at the museum and may want to bring insect repellent and water. Wear good walking shoes.
