Kids’ Nature Snorkel ***Canceled***

 

 

 

 

***This event has been canceled. We apologize for any inconvenience. We hope you can join us at a future event.

 

Let’s get outside and explore nature through stories, the imagination, and play! Together we’ll snorkel through Bald Hill Farm’s trails and learn about the wildlife and plants we see along the way. You’ll also get a unique hands-on look into how we “capture” wildlife using remote cameras. Join Greenbelt Land Trust, Oregon State University wildlife biologist, Jonny Armstrong, and Hike it Baby for this free and family-friendly nature walk. Although kids of all ages are welcome, this walk is ideal for ages 3 and up. Light snacks provided.

Walk With a Naturalist

Join Greenbelt Naturalist, Don Boucher, for a morning nature walk at Bald Hill Farm. Discover the fascinating flora and fauna along the trails, including mid-summer wildflowers, butterflies, birds, and reptiles. Get up-close and personal with critters along the trail with provided hand lenses. We’ll also keep an eye out for threatened and endangered species that this conservation area helps to protect.  This is a free, family-friendly walk. No RSVP is necessary.
