Coffee & Conservation Past Results

Coffee & Conservation Logo

We explored Bamboo Brook Outdoor Education Center in search of birds, butterflies, wildflowers and other natural wonders. These select Step Into Nature programs start with a delicious pot of coffee provided by Black River Roasters. After some good conversation and a little (or a lot of) caffeine, we journey into the meadows and woods surrounding Bamboo Brook. Join our next event!
