Bird Hike at Boot Lake Nature Preserve

Led by Annie Aguirre, Elkhart County Parks

While summer songbirds have flown the coop, late fall at Boot Lake Nature Preserve offers tremendous opportunities to see migrating and wintering birds of all kinds—from Sandhill Cranes and powerful raptors soaring high in the sky, to a dazzling array of waterfowl, including Teals, Buffleheads, Mergansers, and Pintails.


Limited to 12 participants.  Face coverings and distancing required.

Geology Hike at Chain O’ Lakes State Park

Led by Tony Fleming, Professional Geologist

Discover the glacial landscape and water resources, which are vividly displayed at Chain O'Lakes State Park, and how they influence large scale vegetation patterns. 


Limited to 8 participants.  Face coverings and distancing required.

Nature Immersion at Fairywood Forest School

Led by Chris Barth and Sam Sondgerath, Forest School Leaders/Owners

We started Fairywood Forest School 3 years ago, bringing together our two passions: early childhood education and authentic nature experiences.  We are located in the Brown County hill country, surrounded by a vast expanse of public forests.  Visitors will get a chance to tour the forest school area, learn about what we do, our philosophy, how we started, and how we've grown and evolved.  Visitors will also get a chance to meet our farm animals (alpacas/chickens).


Limited to 10 participants.  Face coverings and distancing required.
