Nature Walk #13 -- Spring Visit to Machikane-yama

2015-4-18 (Sat) - 2015-5-9 (Sat)

Machikane-yama, adjacent the Toyonaka campus, is usually not open to the public so its sylvan nature still remains quite untouched. We are indeed fortunate to be able to observe plants in this luxuriant forest located in an urban area. Come and join us as we observe nature in this popular annual event!
