Soil Secrets 

Sunday, May 2, 1-2:30 pm    

Have you ever really noticed the ground beneath your feet? Soil makes your breakfast (and lunch and dinner) and we can’t live without it. Join us at Wehr to gain a greater appreciation of this critical resource. Work as a family to dissect a soil sample to discover the ingredients that make it healthy and then join a naturalist on a discovery walk to see soil in action.

Make Wehr part of your family time. Friends of Wehr members at the family level can join a naturalist for a free, monthly themed discovery walk along Wehr’s trails. Each program will feature a short, socially distanced introductory activity held outdoors in our amphitheater followed by a guided nature walk. Space is limited due to the pandemic and pre-registration is required, so plan ahead so you don’t miss the fun!

Important Program Details:

  • All participants ages three and older are required to wear a mask that covers their nose and mouth throughout the program.
  • These programs are appropriate for children ages 5 years and older. Younger siblings are welcome if able to walk with the group or ride in a backpack (not all trails are stroller friendly).
  • Inclement weather will cancel the program.
  • Register early to guarantee a spot; same day registration permitted if space allows.
