Our mission is to build a passion in our community for nature and the environment through education, experience and action.

Turkey Walk and Trot
Saturday, November 29 at 2:30pm 
Bundle up and bring a camera as we go out in search of some turkeys along the trails with a local expert. We'll start with a short talk about the natural history of turkeys, including discussion on their diet, life span and characteristics.
Free for members, price of admission for non-members.
Meet the Turkeys of Earthplace! Visit Earthplace in the early morning or just before sunset and see if you can spot some yourself!
