Nature Outings

General Information

Our nature outings generally take place the last Sunday of the month. Activities range from gentle walks to more strenuous hikes and explorations. All of our outings are led by volunteers and are offered free of charge.

In some cases, participants are required to register in advance, and this is clearly stated in the notice about the outing. Here’s a link to the waiver that each participant needs to sign, so that you can read it in your own time.

Interested in leading an outing? Contact our Volunteer Coordinator.
