New FFR Program: "Out and About in Nature" Series, 7/21-8/27

Out and About in Nature is a new family-based series from the Friends that will have you walking Five Rivers trails with a renewed sense of wonder!

Sign-up each week for a fifteen-minute session with a naturalist who will engage you in activities created to explore a unique nature topic. Then it’s time to go out and about! The naturalist will provide you with a map of specific trails and then you’ll head out for further investigation. Share your findings and questions with the naturalist by email, phone, or Zoom to discover even more about nature in your own backyard.
For the safety of all participants, each fifteen-minute session is limited to 1 family or 5 participants from the same household. All participants are required to wear masks and to socially distance.
