Walk with a Naturalist

For all programs, watch for the pink and green feather flag to meet us.

We will be following COVID 19 protocols, so don't forget your mask.    

Walk With a Naturalist:  Ever wonder what that animal call was, or which bird flew past? What's the name of that beautiful flower with the spring-loaded seed pods? And how much food can chipmunks cram in those cheeks?
