All ages welcome

Join our experienced staff educators as we wander the rolling grassy hills and shady woodlands of Pepperwood. On Saturday afternoon, we’ll embark on a walk to discover what lives in the meadows, creeks, and forests on our preserve. After a potluck dinner and evening campfire, we’ll unlock the secrets of Pepperwood’s “nightlife” listening for nocturnal animals and gazing at the stars. The next morning we’ll look and listen for songbirds and birds of prey before we say our goodbyes. Throughout our time together, we will gain a deeper connection to nature through joyful exploration. We invite you to bring your own favorite stories, games, or instruments to share around the campfire. Meals will be potluck style–you are invited to bring a dish to share for dinner or breakfast and your own snacks and beverages. Bring a tent to sleep under the stars or sleep in a bunk in the Bechtel House (for an additional fee).

Refund Policy: A full refund will be given for cancellations 8 days or more before the start of this event. Refunds will not be given for cancellations within 7 days of this event.
