Twilight Forest Tours

 

Summer nights learning in the woods

Long summer evenings are perfect for enjoying “twilight tours” of local forests. These free out-in-the-woods events are a chance to share ideas, see what others are doing, and look at real examples of challenges and solutions. Each tour concludes with a potluck dessert, so please bring something sweet to share.
