Event Description: 

Are you already Wild About Nature? Or wanting to Explore Nature but not sure how? Join the Nature Nerds on a CFPA Ramble! Renee is a nature enthusiast and hopes to spread the love! Rambles will vary in length, difficulty, pace and theme. They will also vary based on the season. Nature Nerd Rambles are an opportunity to explore the woods while employing all our senses, trigger curiosity, share and seek knowledge, and nourish our souls in the great outdoors.

CALLING ALL NATURE NERDS... Join us as we hike the approximately 2.5-miles Chatfield Trail loop. Enjoy looking out over Forester Pond as we look for the first signs of autumn. The trail is fairly easy but there are a few steep sections and rock cliffs. Be sure to wear sturdy shoes. No dogs, please.

Registration is required and can be completed by emailing the Guide at the information listed below. Parking and meeting location information will be sent to those who register.

Renee is an First Aid/CPR-trained CFPA Ramble Guide.
