Saturday Programs Focus on Birds and Trees This Weekend

Visitors to the Center this Saturday morning, October 4, at 10am will have the opportunity to get to know our resident birds with a Staff Naturalist during Meet the Animals: Our Feathered Friends, or learn about our local trees with Master Naturalist Jim McKee on his monthly Tree ID Walk. Both of these are drop in programs. While the Tree ID walk is free, there is a $5/person fee for Meet the Animals. Join us for a relatively cooler (yay!) morning in the park!
