Description

Monday Morning Nature Walks continue through the end of March. Take a leisurely walk with volunteer trail guides Brian and Susan Woodworth and explore park trails, observe birds, spot reptiles and discover what's blooming. These two self-taught naturalists actively scout trails in advance of their hikes and keep track of the areas where birds and other wildlife are most likely to be found.

February walks include Young Hammock Trail on Feb. 24. Walk is rated easy to moderate in difficulty and  takes an hour to 90 minutes. Dress for the weather and wear hiking boots, long pants and protective clothing. A hat, sunscreen, insect repellent, water and snacks are recommended. Binoculars, walking sticks, field guides and cameras are useful.
