Step Into Nature

Coffee & Conservation Logo

Join us for a hot cup of morning joe as we explore Bamboo Brook Outdoor Education Center in search of birds, butterflies, wildflowers and other natural wonders. These select Step Into Nature programs will 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 will journey into the meadows and woods surrounding Bamboo Brook.

Please be sure to bring your coffee thermos!
