Event description

Description

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.

Guided Hike Information
Volunteer Hike Guides will meet participants in the lobby of the Exhibit Hall 10 minutes before the scheduled start time. We strongly suggest all hikers visit the restroom before we begin as there are no facilities along the trail.

  • Pre-registration is required by 12:00 noon on the Friday before the hike.
  • Guided hikes vary in length, much of which is on unimproved, uneven sandy trails.
  • Hike takes about 3 hours to complete.
  • Please wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes, sneakers or boots.
  • Insect repellent (bug spray) is strongly recommended in summer months.
  • Bring plenty of drinking water and a snack.
  • A hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen are also recommended.
  • Pets are not permitted.
  • No smoking is allowed.
  • Trained volunteers will guide the hike.

An equal opportunity insitution.
