        May 2nd, June 6 – 2pm FREE
        Come spend a Sunday afternoon exploring our 110-acre nature preserve.  Guided hikes proceed at a leisurely pace and last about an hour depending on weather, destination and participant preferences.  This is a great family outing.  We meet at the campfire ring just inside the preserve.  Sunday Discovery Walks are held on the first Sunday of every month and they are FREE.

        Nature Tales and Trails is held the third Saturday of every month and features a nature-related story and a hike in the woods for children ages 5-8.  Each session focusses on a different theme and is designed to be both educational and entertaining.  Parents are invited to join the fun or enjoy the preserve on your own, however, we do ask that you remain at the preserve throughout the program.
