Visit the Pond, Organic Garden and Creek with a Naturalist

Get the net and bring your appetite: frogs, turtles and fish await you in the pond, and tomatoes and herbs will tempt you in the garden! Saturdays between 10 a.m. and noon naturalists will explore these special places using magnifying glasses and other tools. Expect to journal about your adventures too!

Wear clothes and shoes that can get wet, and don't forget the sunscreen and a hat. 

The program will be canceled in the event of inclement weather as determined by Nature Center staff.

Registration is not required.
