Discovery Days

Throughout the year we offer a variety of Discovery Days, some for the whole community, some for members only. From beginning birding trips at nearby wildlife refuges and natural areas to wintry snowshoe excursions to seed-collecting workshops at our Native Plant Garden, our Discovery Days offer fun forays into many different natural history topics, and are great for the whole family!
