Ages: recommended 12+

Activity Level: Easy; we will walk about a quarter mile through grass

Cost: $15 (members); $20 (non-members). Space is limited, so buy your tickets online while they still last.

Things to Bring: Sturdy shoes and bug spray (we will be walking through grass)

Notes: Tours will be cancelled in case of rain or inclement weather.
