Embark on a guided nature walk with our Director of Horticulture Kimberly Kelly to discover the lively habitat and amazing life cycles of dragonflies flying around Cattail Pond. Kimberly will also discuss the mysterious life of fireflies, and how the presence of both insects is a sign of a healthy ecosystem.

This walk is recommended for ages 12 and up. Please wear footwear appropriate for unpaved nature trails.
