Nature Connection Excursions
The quintessential Wild Neighbors Nature Connection experience! Begin by releasing the tension you've been holding in your body as you receive the forest's welcome. Engage your senses along the way. Meet the Adirondack Park's colorful cast of characters. Make the acquaintance with the pioneers, collaborators, tricksters, free spirits and non-conformists of nature's community.

This can include traversing some of the most challenging terrain in the Adirondack Park, or it can be made to be a handicapped accessible experience.
Nature Connection Programs for Kids
For families and community groups. Maybe it's exploring the insect life in a creek or in a rotting log in the forest. Maybe it's seeing birds and small mammals up close at the Bloomingale Bog and learning about their lives and relationships. Maybe it's a short hike where we learn about the rocks of the Adirondacks (and some that can be picked up with a magnet!). You can expect Wild Neighbors Nature Connection Programs for Kids to be fun, engaging, and educational.
Moose Country Meanderings
