Friday, November 3, 6:30 p.m. - FULL MOON HIKE

From the Wheaton House we'll hike into the dusky woods and explore the park by moonlight. We'll end our hike around a campfire sharing snacks and stories. Don't forget appropriate shoes for hiking and layers for warmth. Meet at the Wheaton House. Fee: Free-will donation or nonperishable food item for the local food bank.




Saturday, November 11, 12:30 p.m. - ARCHERY FOR BEGINNERS

Enjoy one of the fastest growing sports in the United States - archery! We offer a beginner's program based on the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP). We provide the equipment and targets, and you bring your focus, aim, and maybe someone else for a little friendly competition. All ages are welcome. This great family activity is taught by NASP-Certified Instructors. Led by Diane Hawley-Wurth. Fee: $5/person; members and kids, free.




Saturday, November 18, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. - BORDER HIKE

Pack a lunch and join us along a trail less travelled. We'll start with a leisurely pace meandering along a stream and work up to a moderate to difficult finish for those so inclined. Wear hiking boots or sturdy shoes and bring food and a sense of adventure. Fee: Free-will donation.



Sunday, November 20, 1 p.m. - HOLIDAY NATURE CRAFTS

Let's take a walk to gather some of nature's treasures and create a piece of art—maybe a wreath, ornament, or centerpiece. Bring your creativity, a container for your artwork (like a shoebox or a picture frame) and any accessories you might want to add. Bring your own tools—scissors, glue, glue gun—if you have them; we'll have a limited supply available to share. Children 3 to 103 welcome! Fee: Free-will donation.
