Upcoming Events

The Museum remains closed through the end of June, during which time all events have been postponed or cancelled – except those we can offer remotely. Please check back about the status of future events. We hope to be open as soon as it’s safe for everyone. In the meantime, our trails remain open. Taking a walk outside – keeping the recommended six feet apart from any companions – is a great way to enjoy the return of spring birds and wildflowers.
