Family Nature Walks on March Mornings!

Family Nature Walks on March Mornings!

Parent & Me Hikes:  Nature Education Programs are being offered on Wednesday mornings in March 2017 by Kelsi Clark, Program Facilitator, through the Town of Clifton Park’s Parks & Recreation Program.

Come explore Clifton Park’s Open Spaces by visiting a different park or nature preserve each week! This guided excursion offers a nice morning of movement and learning for young children and parents/grandparents who are looking to get outdoors this Spring. Each hike will last approximately one hour and will incorporate a nature education theme. Most of the walks will be “jogging-stroller-friendly” but a child backpack or front carrier is recommended, dependent upon the age of the child participants. Please dress appropriately for trail conditions, as March can be muddy.
