Enjoy FREE nature adventures across the Capital Region!

Enjoy our free resource for explorers, adventurers, and naturalists of all ages and expertise levels. The passport is a collection of 25 micro-adventures which can be completed entirely within the forests, streams, and fields of MHLC’s public preserves and protected lands.

From finding hidden habitat gems to trying out new trails, the passport encourages visitors and residents to pull on their boots, get out the door, and get some dirt under their nails, exploring the spectrum of nature experiences waiting to be enjoyed in the Capital Region.

The last printing of Nature Passports were produced with generous support from the Bethlehem Garden Club.
