Event description
The Weekly Walk About is an evening program designed to explore basic ecological concepts ranging from the life beneath your feet to the trees that tower over you! Each class will include an introduction to a monthly topic, followed by a chance to put your new skills to the test with a hands-on exploration of the various habitats that Duke Farms has to offer.
