Family Nature Walks
The Land Trust is launching a new Family Nature Walks program to get more families outside together and learning on the land. We’re offering three Saturday spring walks — on March 10, April 14 and May 12 — from 10 am to Noon.
In March, we’ll visit our Agate Passage Preserve shoreline. April takes us into the forest at a property near the Gazzam Lake Preserve. In May, we will top things off with a visit to a pond at our Wildlife Corridor within the Grand Forest complex!
Cost per walk is $10 per family for members / $12 for non-members or $25 per family for all three walks. Space per walk will be limited to 8 to 10 children accompanied by a similar number of adults.
These walks were created with a goal of connecting young future naturalists to what is right in their backyard, and providing a better understanding of how the Land Trust works within our community to preserve and steward our special places. We’ve all seen how time spent out in nature benefits young minds, especially to combat the constant presence of digital media. Sharing an experience in nature with family is a fun way to strengthen bonds with the land, and with each other. These will be short hikes of one to two miles and lasting no more than two hours. The hikes will be the perfect opportunity for conversation and to ask questions as we learn about what we’re seeing and things that make each particular property we visit special.
