Please join us for our last connection walks this year. We had to reschedule this walk to October because of the smoke in September. These walks are family friendly and will explore various trails and habitat in the Creston Valley. Come out to learn about the ecology of the Creston Valley and have fun!

Sign up here. Please sign up in advance for this free event. Space is limited to 15 participants.

COVID-19 safety protocols will be in place for this walk.

This walk will take place along the Balancing Rock Trail at the Creston Valley Wildlife Management Area from 9:30-11:30am on Saturday, Oct 17, 2020. We will go to the first lookout and the ‘balancing rock’.  It is a 3 km return trip, and we gain 220m elevation on the trail. This is one of Creston’s most popular trails, but it is steep. We will meet at the Balancing Rock parking lot. Bring extra layers, snacks, water and your curiosity.
