Winter Wildlife Tracking:

Dress is warm layers: hats, gloves, winter boots. Snowshoes are welcome! Bring water and a snack. No dogs, please.


Spring Family Ponding Adventure:

Saturday, May 11, 10am to 12pm

Description: Kids of all ages are welcome to join us as we search the forest for ponds or streams that provide the homes for our very important wetland creatures (such as tadpoles, frogs, dragonflies) and learn how to care for them. Dress in layers for the weather (we will go out if light rain). Bring rubber boots and nets or pond life books, if you have them. Also, bring bug repellent, water and a snack.


Late Summer Full Moon Owl Prowl:

Saturday,  September  14, 7pm to 9pm

Engage your senses of sight and sound as we explore our trails while the full moon begins to rise and nocturnal creatures become active. We will walk quietly, avoid using our flashlights, and try to call in a barred owl! To preserve night vision, please secure a red cloth over your flashlight (use a rubber band). Dress in layers and wear sturdy boots. Insect repellent is recommended. No dogs, please.
