Forest Ecology Preserve 5K Trail Run and Tot Trot

Participants explore the Preserve’s beautiful forested trails on this carefully measured, well- marked 5K course. Splits will be given at 1 and 2 mile marks. Those who prefer are invited to walk the course. Race t-shirts, food and door prizes are included. All proceeds benefit the Preserve. Registration begins in September.

Wine and Cheese Hike

Held annually, this event offers a rare opportunity to enjoy an evening hike with our knowledgeable and entertaining trail guide, Preserve Administrator, Jennifer Lolley.  Guests are invited to partake in a glass of wine and light snacks at the pavilion before heading out on this private excursion.
