On Tuesday mornings at 10:30 AM in the summer (July and August) join us at the Research Station for a family program for all ages. Join Wildlife Rehabilitator Kelly Martin to take a short walk or hike on some of our trails, looking at native plants and animals. Then return to the classroom to get up-close with a few of Kelly's educational animals. This is a popular program and free for all - thanks to the generous support of our members and donors!
