Dunes, Drawing and Dendrology is a new summer program, a thematic series of nature walks, talks, and art workshops, designed to encompass the various natural elements of Conference House Park. 

Conference House Park is home to many diverse and unique plant and tree communities within its 265 acres. The communities range from tall maturing forest stands, young groves, open fields, pocket-forested wetlands, and wet woods. The park contains a rare maritime Northern Hackberry forest (due to high calcium levels from the high number of discarded oyster shells in the soil). There are many tree species at the southern and northern most portion of their growing range—true 'Mason-Dixon' line for trees species.

This educational Walk and Talk is a family-friendly program designed to increase the appreciation and understanding of the numerous tree and plant species found within the various forest types in the park.
