The stunning backbone of the Native Woodland Walk and North Woods began 75 years ago with rhododendrons planted by Dr. Wister among the deciduous trees. Many still thrive today. Later additions include flowering shrubs and trees while spring flowers carpet the ground. We’ve timed this Ramble to coincide with the nesting of our spring birds and the color you will see at every turn.

There’s more to discover in Tyler’s 650 acres. Join Dr. Richard Brenner for a walk through the various eco-communities at Tyler. From seasonal wonders, living fossils, meadows, watery locations, geological treasures, conservation areas, and unexpected wildlife, Richard will expertly guide you to prime areas for an experience you will remember. Expertise from others will often be on hand for a more in-depth exploration. These rambles are for those who have a love for nature, exploring, and learning. While a description of each Ramble is posted in advance, we reserve the right to make last-minute changes, including adjustments for weather and trail conditions. Bring your reusable water bottle and dress for the weather, including sturdy shoes.  

Upon arrival, please check in first at the Visitor Center, where you’ll then meet your guide.
