Take an early morning walk with us as we catch a glimpse of
our favorite summer birds before they take off for their winter homes.
Bring your binoculars or borrow a pair of ours. Nature center staff and
expert birding volunteers lead these hikes and are great resources for
those new to bird watching.
Bird hike will be cancelled in the event of inclement weather.
Wednesday, September 14
The bees are busy in the warm days of fall, and we'll have a
chance to learn all about them from a local beekeeper. Our indoor and
outdoor hives provide a close-up view of all the happenings. Join us as
we laugh, learn, and taste some honey-sweets!
Memory Cafés are for those experiencing early stage
dementia, mild memory loss or cognitive impairment, and for family and
