Join Us for New Member Hikes!

As a welcome and thank for joining our nature community, we hold new member hikes for both adults and families so that you can get to know the Nature Center and all we do here. These hikes are led by Lara Schmid, our Membership Manager, at our Rowe Woods location. Each tour gives you an insider's view of our beautiful grounds, our history and a few fun facts! You'll get the inside scoop on:

  • Fun self-guided opportunities
  • Special events and educational programs
  • Your member benefits
  • Trail rules and conservation ethics

We also offer special introductory hikes of Long Branch Farm & Trails, our members-only location. It's a great way to get to know the natural treasures Long Branch has to offer.

New Member Hikes are offered April through October only.
