Public Walks

Public Walks

These are easy to moderate walks with many stops along the way to point out interesting flora, fauna, geology or insects.


Public walks are generally scheduled every third Saturday, from 9-11 AM, except in August. There is usually another Sunday afternoon public walk during the month. Dates and times vary depending upon the tide and other factors.


The starting trailhead locations and topics vary, so check the monthly events calendar posted at the Nature Center – or the online walk schedule.
