Family Wetland Walks

Morning is an exciting time to be in the wetlands, as it’s the time when songbirds, frogs, and other wildlife begin to move around the wetlands, foraging for food and calling to one another.  In the growing season from spring to fall, each month brings dramatic changes to wetland plant, animal, and bird life, and always seem to have a few surprises in store!  We keep a pace that is comfortable for children, and supply binoculars and other exploration supplies for children and adults.  Come join the fun!
