Program Descriptions

Stars of Our Skies
Learn to navigate the stars, identify constellations, and discover the characters of the sky.  If the clouds roll in, this program will run as a night hike.  See “Darkness Dwellers” for a description.

Landscapers of Bear Brook
Long before Bear Brook was a state park, glaciers tore through the land, forests were sculpted by fire, and trees were cleared for farmland.  Join me on a hike as we learn about nature’s resilience and why Bear Brook looks the way it does today.

Darkness Dwellers
The darkness of night holds many mysteries to an untrained wanderer.  Come along on a hike through the moonlit forest as we experience the life of the nocturnal.
