    The Nature Center can lead programs for your groups on a wide variety of topics. Programs usually run 1 hour in length and include 45 minutes of outdoor activity, plus a 15 minute tour inside Nature House. Your group may also coordinate a longer visit that includes time in our pavilion or additional hiking on our trails. We ask that all groups contact the Nature Center in advance to arrange your visit itinerary, select a topic, and make sure that your visit does not conflict with other nature center activities or visiting groups.
