Program Description

Sounds of The Beaten Path

Join an educator at Sugar Grove Nature Center for a Summer Reading program about the sounds of nature. We’ll discuss some of the sounds you may encounter while hiking at the Nature Center, and then we’ll give a listen to find out what’s really out there. You may discover a new favorite place to read a book!

This program will be held outdoors in a woodsy setting. For your safety, please wear outdoor shoes and appropriate clothing for walking outdoors in the woods during summer temperatures. A personal water bottle is recommended.
