Course description

Join us on a family hike on the Conifer Trail, tailored to young children. We’ll stop at a nature spot to read a story, using children’s literature to explore the season. We’ll look at nature around us in new ways each day, making discoveries about trees, animals, and ourselves! Themes and stories change weekly.
