Guided Nature Walks 2024

Visitors on a nature hike

The Preserve’s spectacular 216 acres offer a mix of natural and landscaped areas to explore. Stroll, hike, jog or run on six marked trails through diverse habitats of woods, open fields, and pond. Trail maps are available at the Gate House.


Join us for this series of all-ages walks as we explore different aspects of the preserve’s environment, encompassing its unique physical features and wildlife, as well as critical conservation issues and helpful practices to create a healthy, sustainable environment.

Our expert guide, environmental educator Hildur Palsdottir, brings a range of perspectives for each outdoor adventure. Hildur will engage audiences in hands-on nature discovery activities, as we celebrate the changing seasons!
