Native peoples traditionally recognized that all beings are related and that animals and plants can be our teachers. With the changes in the season, you might be seeing and hearing different sights and sounds if you take a walk in the woodland environment. Join IAIS Educator and Ecologist Susan Scherf for a guided ecology hike, in which she will share helpful tips on how to identify local species of plants and animals and discuss traditional ways that indigenous inhabitants have interacted with the environment. Following the hike, let your creativity flow as you make a nature-related craft.

Please note: Participants are encouraged to bring binoculars, if they have them. Please dress appropriately for the weather and wear sturdy footwear. Portions of the hike will involve a steep section of trail.

Space is limited, and pre-registration is encouraged. Please visit our website to register online. Questions? Please email [email protected] or call (860) 868-0518. Price of Participation: $5 for Members; $10 for Non-members.
