Come explore what nature has in store this winter at some of our most amazing wild places on the North Shore. Joppa Flats Education Coordinator Lisa Hutchings and her team will introduce families to local forests, beaches, and trails to make observations in nature, identify wildlife, and enjoy hands-on science activities outdoors. Sign up for one, some, or all!
