The Trees on the Trail Workshop

9-10:30 AM Children’s Activities | 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM Trail Walk

Bring the family for a free adventure on the Noland Trail! This special family workshop, led by Tree Steward and Master Naturalist Deloris Parker, will teach us about the wonders of nature we see every day. We will start at the Museum, learning about the parts of trees, how they grow, the role they play in our natural world, and their many uses. Then we will head outside for a walk on the Noland Trail where we will take a closer look at the trees growing all around us. Recommended for ages 6 to 12 with their families. Limited space available.
