Eco-Book Club and Hike

If you are an outdoor enthusiast and book lover, this reading and hiking combo is for you! Each month we will explore a different aspect of the natural world through a virtual book discussion and a self-guided hike at your local park.

This program is free and open to the public, but advanced registration is preferred.
