Public Hike

Saturday, May 14, 2022
9am – 1pm

Meet at the Dwight Center
Free, donations appreciated 
Ages 10 and up welcome

Join us for fun, exercise, and learning! Explore Pepperwood’s forests and grasslands as you learn about animals, plants, natural history, and the ecological stewardship of our 3,200 acre preserve. We will explore the verdant green hills and other unique seasonal phenomena of the springtime. See how our landscapes have been impacted by fire, and explore the implications of a changing climate. Find out what Pepperwood is doing to steward the land and build resilience at our preserve and beyond. Participants are invited to bring a bag lunch to enjoy on the hike.

This is a moderate to strenuous hike of 3-4 miles, over varied and hilly terrain. It will go on in light rain, though heavy storms will cancel.  

All events will align with the current regional health guidelines. Please bring a mask and be prepared to wear it when indoors (in the bathrooms), and when 6 feet of courtesy distance cannot be maintained from others. If you do not feel well, please do not attend.
