Guided Nature Walk - Insects

Intended audience: all ages / all levels of experience

In-Person Only

Curious about what lies underfoot? Want to experience familiar trails through the eyes of a seasoned entomologist? This is your chance! Guided nature walks can be between 25 and 90 minutes long depending on the audience. The guide will provide information tailored to whatever insects the group encounters during the walk. 

 

For the best results, we recommend scheduling nature walks when the temperature is expected to be above 60°F with no precipitation. You are guaranteed to see things that you've never seen before – or your money back!
