Nothing is better than starting the day with a warm cup of coffee or tea and breathing some fresh spring air! Participants will love seeing the beauty of spring revealed and the chance to get to know some other nature-lovers on this naturalist guided tour. Wear comfortable walking shoes as we will walk up to a half-mile.
