Guided Tours

Take an interpretive tour through the Forest Ecology Preserve & Nature Center with a trained naturalist. Guided Discovery Hikes and Nature Walks feature a different topic each month chosen from a variety of seasonal themes. If you are new to the area or uneasy venturing out on your own, this is a great way to safely explore the outdoors while learning about the plants, wildlife, and ecology of our area. Guided tours will be available monthly beginning July 2014 and are free to the public. Donations are welcomed. Advance registration is not required. Cancelled in the event of rain.

Nature Walks

Join our guides for a peaceful morning walk as you take in the many sights and sounds of the preserve.  Nature Walks are good for the mind, body, and soul and offer excellent opportunities to socialize and learn, while enjoying fresh air and exercise in our beautiful outdoors. Walks are offered  the second Thursday of each month from 8:30 – 9:30 a.m.
