Our facility will be closed today, Saturday, March 25th, due to the winter storm.

As always, you’re invited to hike our trails, which are open daily from dawn until dusk.
Please do exercise caution in these snowy conditions as we can’t guarantee the state of our parking lots and hiking trails.

Welcome! Our facility is open on weekdays from 9am to 4pm and on weekends from 10am to 2pm.

Wearing a face mask indoors is optional. Because we are a childcare facility and follow public health protocols, we have limited access to some public offerings and areas of our facility. We appreciate your patience as we work to find a healthy balance of access and safety for our community.

As always, our grounds and trails featuring self-guided tours are free and open daily from dawn until dusk.

Quadrats Are Where It’s At

November 18, 2014 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Registration Deadline: Friday, November 14, 2014
A quadrat is a simple device for marking out a small area. It helps focus attention on a particular area and understand how they can be used to sample a larger area. By recording information from a number of quadrats placed within a larger study area, scientists obtain a sample of the whole area, which may be too big to describe in full. We’ll spend the afternoon plotting in the prairie and measuring the maple field!
