Enjoy Nature All Season Long!
Winter Festival and Artisan Market
Saturday, February 1st, 11am-3pm
What better way to spend a winter day than enjoying quality, fun time with your family and community at the Preserve! From sledding and ice skating (bring your own skates!), to live rescue demonstrations, we’ll have outdoor activities for everyone to enjoy. Warm-up inside with hot cocoa and food, take part in our free crafts, shop for hand-crafted treasures from our local vendors, and join Kelly Martin, local wildlife rehabilitator, for an indoor show-and-tell of her rescued animals. We will also have an opportunity to come along on a guided hike in our winter woods at 1 PM.
Full Moon Hike
Saturday, February 8th, 6pm
Join us after hours for a nighttime hike, and then relax with a bonfire and snacks. We will start at the Eldridge Research Center. Dress for the weather and wear sturdy shoes. Feel welcome to bring a flashlight- red light preferred.

With Kelly Martin, Wildlife Rehabilitator
Saturday, March 14th, 5-7pm
Kelly will begin with an indoor showing of her live, rescued owls and will share the wonders of these incredible birds with the community. Then the Prowl will venture outdoors, where we will keep our eyes and ears open in search of owls in the wild. Bring headlamps or flashlights if you'd like (red lights preferred).
All ages are welcome!
