|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 2:00 pm on Sunday, repeating until March 28, 2021

Join our Naturalist Educators each Sunday on a guided hike along the beautiful trails of Fontenelle Forest.

All hikes will be from 2:00-4:00 p.m and last two hours, traversing easy-to-moderate terrain. Social distancing guidelines will be followed. Masks will be required whenever hikers cannot maintain a six-foot distance from one another.

Each Sunday we will be meeting at a different trailhead so that participants are able to experience some of the lesser-known trails. Locations will rotate between the Nature Center, Camp Wa-Kon-Da, and Neale Woods (see descriptions of each location below).

Maximum of 15 people per event. Pre-registration is required.

This event is free to members and $15 for non-members.  Members must sign in to receive discount.
