Backyard Trail Hike (easy)

Join a ranger for an easy hike.  During this hike you will learn about all the creatures you are likely to see in your own backyard.  We will bring binoculars but feel free to bring your own.  Wear appropriate footwear and clothing for the weather. We encourage you to bring your children as this is in celebration of the Take A Child Outside Week.
