Hey Gang! Take a look at the right-hand side of the page. There is all kinds of helpful info over there. Take note, that the Open/Close dates for 2014 are now posted! Will Spring Fever be raging in late March? We have the cure! We'll open the gates starting March 19th! And don't worry, you'll have all the way until Nov. 9 to take advantage of the gorgeous fall color - and stock up on Birch Beer for the winter! ;)
Also, take a gander at the 2014 Guided Programs page. I'm pleased to announce a new workshop that was just posted there. Spider expert, author of Common Spiders of North America
, and all around nice guy, Richard Bradley will be hosting a day-long spider workshop for us in September! It's going to be a lot of fun. Remember though for all of our workshops, we require you to register in advance for it. Registration needs to be by phone. (The number is within the program description and on the right-hand side of this page under "Contact Us".)
Lastly, if you are experiencing a longing for our dear old Wahkeena or want to get out and about in the woods this winter, check out our Winter Off-trail Hike
. If you've been on our off-trails before you may notice a change in start times. Due to the often long running nature of these hikes, we've decided to start them in the morning so we don't get caught in fading light at the end of the day! This is also a by phone, registration only event. We limit the number of people on the hike so everyone has the chance to hear the naturalist, and see any animal surprises we may encounter.
If you can't make it out to the Winter Off-trail, how about a spring one? Our Spring Off-trail Hike is scheduled for March 16. It will be a great way to kick off the official start of spring which will occur on the following Thursday.
In the meantime there are all kinds of places to go and hikes to participate in. A quick internet search will reward you will all kinds of options to keep you busy out of doors this winter.
