Fall Bird Hike
Saturday, September 5
7:30 – 10:00 AM
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.
Wednesday, September 9
As we welcome autumn to the nature center, we'll enjoy
learning about our prairie and native plants. The prairie changes with
each season, so we will celebrate with song and laughter.
Memory Cafés are for those experiencing early stage
dementia, mild memory loss or cognitive impairment, and for family and
friends of those affected. It’s a great opportunity for lively
discussions, information gathering, refreshments, camaraderie, and lots
of creative fun thrown in.
