HIKES & SPECIALITY PROGRAMS

We are taking a break! Stay tuned for other offerings, and have a great summer. Please, be respectful of the wild places you visit. Be role models and caretakers. Carry out your trash, stay on the trails, don’t leave anything but footprints and keep your dog on a leash.  THANK YOU!

Parents and adults that need to sink into a joyful connection to nature: This is for you!  Come immerse yourself in a blissful soak of quiet, peaceful wilderness…and go with other good people.

Join Heather King, our program director, and sink into a deeper calm, a lighter step and a moment just to breathe, notice the natural world and forget about all the rest. There will be shared observations, natural silence, and comfortable companionship. You design your experience within loose possibilities and the spontaneous moments we discover in nature.
