Afternoon on the Trails at IslandWood

IslandWood hosts “Afternoon on the Trails” from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, April 19.

Wild places are full of natural treasures and surprises around every corner. At this very special Afternoon on the Trails honoring Earth Day,  attendees can discover the beauty in small things. Walkers can bring a small “natural treasure” back to campus for the Ask the Naturalist panel. Educators will be standing by during the event to examine and guide people through the identification process. There will be microscopes set up, field guides and other scientific tools to dig deeper into identification and classification.

Walkers are welcome to bring a picnic lunch or snacks.

Please no dogs at this event unless they are a service animal. Pre-registration is recommended, more information is at

The event is free, but donations are appreciated.
