We've long been known for our outstanding hiking program for young children. People keep asking for us to host docent led hikes for adults and families on weekends.

We've listened - join us for hikes over the spring and summer! One of our nature docents leads the hikes where you can learn about the flora, fauna and history of our parks. Email us to reserve your spot and get detailed information.
