Walks on the Wild side are an opportunity for adults and children to spend quality family time in the great outdoors finding, observing, and admiring local wildlife. Each program begins at Joppa Flats Education Center with a brief introduction to our theme via slide shows, group activities, or an in-class demonstration.  This session's theme will be raptors that are living in the nearby Parker River National Wildlife Refuge

Our outdoor exploration begins with a group game to burn off some steam, followed by eye-opening experiences in our natural neighborhood. We'll observe, investigate, and compare wild inhabitants, their adaptations, and the changes these organisms undergo seasonally. Participants play out the roles of geologists, birders, botanists, and biologists in all the habitats. Each wild walk will leave your family excited to come back for more!
