Description: Today, a pine plantation known as the “Torbolten Forest” occupies most of the Constance Bay peninsula, an area once known as “The Sand Hills”. Historically, this site was a scrub savanna, a largely open habitat with scattered pine trees and clumps of shrubs. Many of this habitat’s unique species can still be found along trail edges and in clearings. This hike will showcase various native grasses, forbs, and shrubs, as well as the missing ecological relationships from this lost ecosystem.
Difficulty: 2/5 (A few rises, and walking in sand can be awkward)
