March 14- April 18 (six-week series program)
Nature’s Little Explorers Series: Time to Wake Up!
Spring is coming and the forest is starting to wake up! Each week, we will head out into the woods to see who is waking up next – could it be salamanders? Or maybe butterflies? Bumble bees and flowers? There’s only one way to find out – we’ve got to get outside and explore!
Children must be accompanied by an adult. Program for ages 3-5. $35 for members; $50 for public.
Magical Maples and Munchies
Is there a tree so magical as a maple? Join us in a celebration of all things maple, including some special maple treats! This program will include a short walk outside to our sugar bush. Snowshoes provided, if necessary. Program for adults. $6 for members; $9 for public.
Star Party: Goodbye Winter Skies
Join Bob Piekiel to say goodbye to winter skies. There will still be great views of Orion and maybe a few Lyrid meteors, as well. Back-up date March 17th. Be sure to dress warmly. Program for all ages. $6 for members; $9 for public.
Spring Equinox Meditation Hike
NOTE: This program has been cancelled; however, our trails are open every day from dawn to dusk with no admission fee, so we hope you’ll stop by The Woods for a visit soon.
The Spring Equinox is near; a time to finally shed our winter coats! Through guided meditations along the trails, we’ll tune into the renewal and awakening magic of nature. This is an outdoor hike; please dress appropriately. Program for adults. $6 for members; $9 for public.
Watch runs through April 15th
Each spring during the first warm rainy night after the equinox, hundreds of amphibians move from underground lairs to vernal pools. To find out when the nature center staff will attempt to observe this migration at Labrador Hollow, watch for alerts on our website, or sign up online to be put on our alert list. Program will meet at Labrador Hollow Unique Area. Program for ages 5 and up. $6 for members; $9 for public.
While college basketball teams battle on the hardwoods for title of the best team, we’ll be competing in The Woods to see who survives in games pitting predators vs. prey. Just because you’re a predator doesn’t mean you always get your prey! Predator and prey will compete using hunting, escape, and tracking tactics to see who can survive a morning in The Woods. Program for ages 10 and up. $6 for members; $9 for public.
