MHLC Events 2020 Calendar
Get outside and connect with nature at one of our free events! There is something for everyone in our 2020 line-up: birdwatching, mushroom foraging, forest therapy, wilderness challenges, pollinator identification, and more! Our outdoor events take place in our 20 preserves, and we partner with local organizations, naturalists, and experts to bring you an exciting schedule of opportunities to learn and explore.
Sign up for our mailing list for monthly reminders of upcoming events!
This Halloween skip the costumes and candy …let’s go for a Full Moon Hike! Educator Christian Johnson will lead the group through the moonlit trails at the Switzkill Farm easement in Berne, a location that has earned recognition for its amazing views of the night sky. Bring your red light headlamps or flashlight–we’ll supply you with red filters.
From the slow turn of geologic events, the succession of plant species, to the events that describe the human experience, history is recorded across the pages of our landscapes. In this workshop participants will learn how to read and interpret the landscape in its present state to determine age/succession of the forest, previous human activity (old and recent), locate springs, natural food and medicine sources, and much more.
