Please note: This event has already taken place. Please use the Search options on the right to find upcoming events.

On Nature Exploration Hikes we will discover the plants and animals that inhabit the urban forest.

Hiking and Orienteering programs feature intensity levels ranging from light (a leisurely stroll on mostly paved paths), 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.
