Grab the entire family (and any lingering holiday visitors too!) and head on down to the New Canaan Nature Center! You won’t want to miss this awesome annual event, a long-time favorite for both members & guests. Join the NCNC Naturalists for a healthy, invigorating Trail Trek to work off that holiday meal. While “waddling” the trails, we’ll search for some of nature’s most treasured gifts (apple trees, maple trees & honey bees to name a few) and learn why the end of autumn may not be quite as quiet as you may think. In fact, autumn is a busy time of year for many wild animals such as deer, squirrels & birds!
As an extra Thanksgiving bonus, after our hike, you’ll also get to enjoy a FREE behind the scenes tour of our Animal Care facilities & Birds of Prey Exhibit – our way of saying “thank you” to the community.
Naturalists will be departing with groups from the Sugar Shack for Trail Treks at 10:30 AM, 11:30 AM and 1:00 PM (sign up is on a first come, first serve basis with limited spots for each).
Other fun activities that Waddlers can enjoy anytime from 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM include our “Getting Ready for Winter” Scavenger Hunt, as well as Letterboxing – a family favorite, self-guided adventure course across the NCNC property! Stop by the Front Desk for more information or to borrow one of our Favorite Flora & Fauna of NCNC Guide Books.
