Field Trips and Events

The Nature Conservancy offers opportunities each year for people to see our preserves.

We have nature walks and hikes spring through fall to our Bluff Mountain Preserve. Bluff can be enjoyed either by participating in one of our scheduled hikes ($15/person; schedule here) or by arranging a private hike ($150/trip; 10-person limit). The trail is a moderate, 3-mile loop with a 300’ elevation change, traversing the diversity of natural communities that make Bluff an ecological treasure. Hikes may be subject to cancellation if not filled or due to inclement weather. If hike fees pose a challenge financially, please contact the hike leaders to make special arrangements.
