Get "lost" with us in the North Woods! Explore how this carefully planned woodland provides habitat for a variety of wildlife. Discover who calls the forest floor, the Meer shoreline, and the treetops their home.

Bring your family for a guided walk and discover why Central Park is a sanctuary for plants, animals, and humans alike. Learn about the architecture, landscapes, and ecosystems of the Park through hands-on exploration using Discovery Kits – rugged backpacks filled with kid-friendly binoculars, field guides, hand lenses and complementary Discovery Journal.
