Join Parks Commissioner Brad Conner and Audubon member Janice King on a 1.2-mile walk through one of our least-visited city parks. Spanning both sides of Beaver Lake Drive, this 67-acre forest, with mature trees and 1600 feet of Beaver Lake shoreline, is home to a variety of wildlife, including wood ducks, barred owls and the northern red-legged frog.
- All walks start at 10 AM and last for 1-1/2 to 2 hours.
- Walks are led by volunteers - wildlife experts, naturalists, photographers, parks commissioners and others - all of them knowledgeable and eenthusiastic about our regional parks and trails.
- Bring your cameras or binoculars but leave your dogs at home as we will be focusing on plants and wildlife.
