Woo-hoo!! The school year is over and what better way to celebrate the start of summer vacation than by getting outdoors for a hike. Kids, bring an adult for a 2.6-mile hike over rolling sand dunes. We will explore this rare ecosystem through hands-on activities and discover many seasonal surprises.
This program will meet at the wooden and metal kiosk at trailhead #1 (not inside the Discovery Center).
