Public Site Tour - February 17, 2019

UPDATE: Trails are closed due to fallen trees. This tour will take place on the main campus.

Look past the showy carpet of moss and see the first signs of spring. How better to enjoy its arrival than with a skilled naturalist and others who are drawn to IslandWood by their interest in environmental education and stewardship? Leave feeling invigorated and inspired.

A volunteer docent will lead this three-hour walk through our ecologically diverse campus, visiting a cattail marsh, pond, forest, and ravine, as well as field structures such as a suspension bridge and tree house. In addition to natural history, you will learn about the various sustainable elements of the buildings and our educational programs. This tour is for adults and teens 15 and up.

  • Wear comfortable shoes. The walk is moderate (with possible mud, steep hills, and gravel).
  • Wear weather-appropriate clothing; much of the tour takes place outdoors.
  • Water bottles are encouraged, but please no food.
  • We ask that no children younger than 15 years old be brought on the tour. (A small child in a carrier is ok, but please, no strollers.)
