Forest News

  • Trick-or-Treat in the Forest returns on Saturday, October 11! This special members-only event is one of the highlights of our year. This year, we have even more fun planned, including a new "Horrors" of Nature trail for children ages 9 and up. For more information and to register, click here. Please note: Member Appreciation Month postcards were mailed that erroneously listed this event on October 12. Saturday, October 11 is the correct date.

  • Please note: Due to unforeseen circumstances, the previously announced enLIGHTen exhibit has been postponed until October 2015.
