The Urban Forest
Just as it had for Native Americans for centuries prior, a lush, semi-tropical forest greeted and provided resources to General Oglethorpe and Savannah’s earliest European settlers. Savannah is still blessed with a marvelous urban forest. This downtown walking tour helps you discover the natural history behind Savannah’s history while focusing on native species, landscaping, and architecture as these relate to our urban forest. Your WiSE Guide will introduce you to the history behind Savannah’s history and the natural side of the city of Savannah.
Savannah’s beauty is evergreen. You’ll enjoy strolling our parks and squares, hearing stories of the lives and useful attributes of Savannah’s trees. If you wish, we’ll meet you at your downtown Inn and stroll from there. There is a possibility of arranging this tour by rented bicycle. Just ask.
