At each Family Walk, we get to know the local native plants and animals of the area. In each season there are native and non-native plants in different phases, and different animals are out and about that we can observe directly or through tracks and signs. There is also a theme for each walk, based on the season and the unique characteristics of the location.

These walks are created for kids to explore local wild places and for parents to learn more about ecology and our local natural and human history.

When parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and brothers and sisters learn together the experience is more connected and meaningful for everyone. These walks will introduce your family to new places, and allow you to see places you have been before in a new light! Please join me.
