Want to help your children connect with nature? Bring them to Lime Rock Preserve for a children’s guided nature walk with Becky Settje. You and your children will be encouraged to be nature detectives by using your senses to observe interesting plants, trees, insect behavior, historic land use and more. We’ll walk through woodlands on an old trolley path, rest near a pond and share the sights, smells and sounds as we go. This walk will is a repeat of the walk on Tuesday April 19.
Our Children’s Walks are suitable for children K through 6th grade. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Bring water and snacks and be sure to use restrooms before your arrival as there are no facilities at this location. Long sleeved shirts, long pants, socks and sturdy shoes also recommended.
