Enjoy a thoughtful and thought-provoking ramble through the Gardens. Participants will learn about plants, insects, birds, weather, and more during the walk led by Jay Kranyik, Garden Manager, naturalist, nature photographer, and member of the Cloud Appreciation Society. Past walks have included encounters with hawks, hummingbirds, and (at a safe distance!) a seed-marauding bear. Bring rain jackets/umbrellas if needed, and a loupe and binoculars if you have them.
