Take Dewey Street, West Springfield to the end of Bear Hole Road.
Tammy will lead participants on a 1 mile round-trip walk on easy terrain (1/2 mile each way). Participants will be welcomed to ask questions about the natural world around them, as well as enjoy the explanations of interesting finds along the way. Participants will follow an easy terrain, maintained woodland trail that navigates through Bear Hole's forest while enroute to the glen of the historic Bear Hole restaurant where everyone will explore along Paucatuck Brook, abutting woodlands and along the edge of the reservoir. The fun of it is you don't know what will be discovered or maybe you always had a question about something you routinely see and hope Tammy can provide an answer. Dialogue will be fun and energetic. Questions are highly encouraged.
This event is suitable for children age 6 and older, however younger children are welcomed. Parents please use your best judgement. All young children must be supervised. Adults who enjoy shorter treks are encouraged to attend.
We love pets, but for this event we ask they be left at home.
If you have wanted to bring your children to one of our events, but feel what we normally host is too intense or if you are an adult who prefers shorter treks, this event is for you!
