Story Time and Hike
Every Wednesday at 10am
Friends of Rogers invite you and your toddler to our Story Time and Hike. Songs and stories start off this fun family program followed by a short hike on the trails. Bring a snack or a picnic lunch to enjoy after the hike with your new found friends.
Spring marks the beginning of drastic changes in the woods. The emergence of tree leaves is one of the most notable differences we may observe. Leaves allow us to identify species that were harder to name during dormant winter months. Tree leaves come in a variety of shapes and sizes which helps when trying to identifying them. Learn how to differentiate trees based on their leaves through the use of laminated specimens in this hands-on workshop.

Crepuscular Hike: Call of the Peeper
Friday, April 22nd at 7 pm
For many, the call of the spring peeper marks the arrival of the long overdue spring season. Their sleigh-bell-like chorus can reach 110-120 decibels from just 6 inches away. For comparison, a jet engine produces 120 decibels from 120 feet away! Despite their loud calls, spring peepers are only about the size of a thumbnail and are seldom seen. Embark on a twilight journey as we search for this very vocal but elusive creature. Flashlight recommended.
