We offer many events throughout the year. We also have a Full Event Calendar. The following is a short list of upcoming events:

Watching for Waterfowl

Saturday, December 16 at 11:00am

Wintering waterfowl and shorebirds arrive weekly. Stop by the Couchville Lake shoreline and take a look through our spotting scope. In recent years we’ve seen hooded mergansers, black ducks, loons and ring-billed gulls taking a break on our 110-acre lake. A ranger will be on hand for about an hour with field guides to assist with identification. Don’t forget your binoculars!

Saturday, December 16 at 11 AM -We’ll take a hike along the Inland Trail in Area 4 and take a look at nature’s medicine chest and pharmacopoeia for plants used as teas by our ancestors. Don’t forget your favorite tea cup to sample a spot of tea. Ranger Rawlings
