Upcoming Events

  • First Day Hike:
    Sunday, January 2nd, 2022, at 1:00 PM (rescheduled due to rain)
    The Friends will lead a leisurely walk along the trails of Tall Pines to observe the calm beauty of the Preserve in winter and to view the remarkably active bird life at the Preserve this time of year.
