DescriptionJoin us at Wayfarers to venture into the wild world of plants! Each week¿s theme will focus on a different aspect of the plant world. Explore subject from how plants get their names to their relationships with insects and everything in between. Join us for just one week or enjoy the whole series and watch the progression from spring to summer. There is more to plants than meets the eye!

All ages are welcome. The walks are a moderate pace, up and down inclines, and are approximately a mile in length. Hikes are conducted on trails making strollers and wagons unusable. Bring comfortable walking shoes and dress for the weather. The cost for each walk is $4 per person.
