Nature Workshop Series

Hidden Valley Nature Center | Sat, Apr 24 - Sat, Nov 13 | All Ages


Time: Sat, Apr 24 - Sat, Nov 13, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Location: Hidden Valley Nature Center


Join experts from various fields in this exciting educational series! Workshops will range from general naturalist hikes that opportunistically explore whatever we encounter on the trail, to specific topics including tree ID, geology, birding, and marine ecology. To complement this core naturalist theme, some workshops will focus on how we connect to the natural world and skills that strengthen this connection, such as foraging and tracking. Workshops will run on select Saturdays from 10am-12pm, with picnic tables onsite so bring a bag lunch for afterwards!
