Summer is a wonderful time to collect those garden herbs that are known for not only their culinary benefits, but for medicinal purposes as well. While some reach for an antacid to help with digestive ailments, many of our tried and true plants can offer a natural form of relief. Participants will be introduced to plants such as chamomile, mint, basil, fennel, lemon balm and anise hyssop during a brief hike and then partake in some taste testing afterwards.

Cost: $12/person
Registration and payment due July 20

And every fall, hundreds of thousands of tags are purchased to place on migrating monarchs to help scientists answer many questions about their migration pattern. Join naturalist Jessica Miller as she explains the basics behind one of the coolest phenomenon on Earth, monarch migration. In addition, each participant will have the opportunity to assist with tagging, testing and releasing a butterfly. Registration is limited so register early.

Cost: $6/person or $10/household
