Hiking is the ultimate way to enjoy the outdoors and reduce stress. Regardless of the intensity level, it is a great way to burn calories and stay fit. 

On Nature Exploration Hikes we will discover the plants and animals that inhabit the urban forest. Ethnobotany looks at the cultural and historical uses of plants.  For instance, did you know that the tea made from white pine needles contains a high dose of Vitamin C?  

Hiking programs feature intensity levels ranging from light, (a leisurely stroll on mostly paved paths), to moderate (longer, faster paced hikes on rugged terrain), to vigorous (long distance, with hills and rugged terrain).  For all hiking programs we recommend wearing comfortable shoes or boots, and packing water and a light snack.
