Spend the morning discovering the plant life, animals and insects who inhabit the different layers of our local forest. Our guided walk will take you into the Nature Preserve for a morning of discovery.

We’ll talk about the creatures who inhabit our woods, what level of the forest they live in, what they eat, etc. and then look for evidence of local wildlife. Campers will uncover hidden treasures as we had into the trails for hands-on environmental exploration.
