Explore local parks and trails with other parents/caregivers and their children. Enjoy the outdoors together, discovering the joys of our beautiful natural surroundings.

Family Treks is a FREE program for families with children 0-5 years of age. This program gives parents the opportunity to connect with other parents and share resources. Throughout the program, you will also receive additional resources to help build your confidence in getting outside and ultimately form a life-long relationship with nature.
