NEW YEAR’S DAY WALK
It’s time again for our annual New Year’s Day walk along Stillman’s trails. Over the years, we’ve seen everything from bluebirds and shrikes to the remains of coyote kills. If you like winter, don’t like football, or just want to greet 2024 outdoors; this is the walk for you. See Event page for more detail
