What do you get when you mix a hike, expert naturalists, room to explore, and a dash of serendipity? Trail School: October Explorations! Inspired by one of the great naturalists of the 19th century, Enos Mills, each excursion will take us on an adventure as we explore away from the main trails. Our 182-acre “classroom” is rich with diverse habitats, including streams, forests, wetlands, beaver ponds, and open meadows. $30 members; $45 public. This is a three-week series of adventures for kids ages 5-13, which meets weekly on Friday mornings from 9am-12pm at Baltimore Woods Nature Center in Marcellus. Seats for this program are limited. Themes for each week are listed below, so get ready for some October exploration!
