When: Saturday, October 21, 10–11 am
Where: Blue Heron Nature Preserve
Uncover the treasures of the Forest in the City! A Blue Heron naturalist will lead families through our shady woodland habitat, searching for pinecones, rocks, leaves, acorns, flowers and more! Our easy ramble will take us on and off our trails as we listen to migrating birds and uncover roly-polies. Families are encouraged to stay and enjoy our Fall Open House events after the walk. We will be creating a fun nature craft with our scavenger hunt finds in our Children’s Garden at 11 am. Our trails are easy to walk, although we do encounter some sandy areas and uneven ground. We recommend a sling or carrier for babies, as strollers can be difficult to maneuver through woodchips and sand. The total hike will be no more than 1/2 mile.
