Walking Stick Program

Join us for one of our many hikes & walks! See programs page for more details.

Take a Hike!

Two hikes are offered each month.  One hike is at Garlo Heritage Nature Preserve and is a "Nature Walk Bird Talk".  The second hike is always at a different nature preserve with a different theme.  Attend 4 hikes and earn your walking stick.  Attend another four hikes and earn a medallion and so on.

Just sign in with the naturalist.  No time limits for earning your walking stick.  Benefits include: getting a little exercise, seeing some awesome wildlife, meeting some new people on the trail and last, but not least, it is fun!
