  • 10 to 11:30 a.m., Saturday, May 20: Fantastic Frogs. Meeting in the Visitors Center, attendees will find out why frogs are so fantastic and what all the fuss is about with a presentation followed by lots of fun games. Participants are encouraged to dress for the weather as a portion of the program will be outdoors. 
  • 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., Saturday, May 27: Wellness in Nature Hike. Meeting in the West Picnic Area, participants will learn the many health benefits of being present in nature like becoming more relaxed, higher concentration and lowering the risk of heart disease and high blood pressure.

Wear supportive shoes and bring some water.

The 1.25-mile Bog Walk trail follows a winding boardwalk through a spruce/tamarack bog to view pitcher plants, sundews, orchids and other plants all without disturbing the fragile bog.

Other times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
