Workshop Spotlight: TREE ID WALK


Learn to identify our forest trees during this walking tour and exploration of Our Haven Nature Sanctuary. Interested children are welcome, but must be accompanied by an adult. Please dress appropriately for the weather and in shoes suitable for walking and standing for an hour. We will meet at the Welcome Tent and walk from there wherever our hearts and the trees lead us.
