FREE Weekend Nature Programs

Looking at Plants in the Nature Preserve

Join us every Saturday at 10:30am and Sunday at 1:00pm for a hike or a talk led by one of our naturalists. These public programs, appropriate for all ages and interest-levels, are provided free of charge. Consistent with our goals of educating and inspiring the community, the programs cover a wide-range of science and nature-related topics from bird-watching to solar-cooking. Guest speakers featured throughout the year bring expertise and passion to their programs, attracting many return visitors.

Space is limited - sign-ups are taken the day of the event. We recommend you arrive 30 minutes prior to start time. Weekend programs are free to visitors, but donations helps us keep our doors open and programs running.
