Extended Brooker Creek Guided Hike
Saturday, February 25, 2017 from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM (EST)
Join us for a 2.8 to 4 mile walk as we look at how the land has changed over time and discuss the ecological footprints left by those changes. Hike trails will be determined by trail condition. Sturdy closed-toe shoes are a must, and water and a hat are recommended.
All ages are welcome. Children under the ages of 16 must be accompanied by an adult and those younger than 10 may find this hike challenging.
