Our facility will be closed Monday, January 16th in honor of Martin Luther King Jr Day.
We plan to reopen on Tuesday, Jan 17th at 9am.

As always, you’re invited to hike our trails, which are open daily from dawn until dusk.

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.

Which Came First?

March 31, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

$10 – $55

The chicken or the egg?  We won’t find the answer to this age-old question, but we will learn all about eggs and animals that lay them.  We’ll start off the day making birds nests and using natural materials to dye an egg to mimic the variety of colorful eggs made by wild critters.  After that, we’ll head out with binoculars to search for returning spring birds, play games about beaks, look at feathers and wings, and practice our best bird calls!

Registration deadline: Monday, March 30th, 2015 at 12:00am

Cost: $55/child

Add on Tuesday’s Extended Day from 8:30-9am and 4-5:30pm for extra flexibility!
