A family-friendly stroll down a forest path. We’ll read a story about animal houses and then we’ll go explore some real animal habitats along the trail. Do you know where birds live? Chipmunks? Beaver? Come join us and find out! We recommend bringing water, insect repellent, sun screen, binoculars and camera.
