Field Trips & Events

Field Trips & Programs Spring/Summer 2020

**NOTE: Due to the Covid-19 outbreak we will not be conducting in person field trips in May. In the meantime, you can join Sparky on his “Virtually Live” field trips in the bog. 

Though the Welcome Center is closed for the season (we always close in mid March), the trails around the Welcome Center and the boardwalks at Warren Nelson Memorial Bog and Fringed Gentian Bog are open to hike and get some fresh air. Thanks and Happy Hunkering!
