Sunday Afternoon Nature Center Walk

  • Jan 12, 2014 · 3:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

It's time to join us at the Springfield Conservation Nature Center for a walk through the woods to see what's blooming. This is an easy two-mile hike. We see deer up close nearly every time we go and sometimes turkeys!

We will meet at the trailhead, which is by the open pavilion on the east side of the parking lot.  We generally do not go if it is raining, but I will post if it's cancelled at least half an hour before the start.

As always let us know what days, times and events that you would like to see happening and we will put something together.  Happy Hiking!


Participation in any Take~A~Hike or meetup events is done so at your own risk, so while you are having fun out there, remember to be careful.

    Hi All ~ I hiked Nature Center this morning (Saturday). FYI - due to the melting snow and yesterday's heavy rain there was a lot of ice on the gravel part of the trail running parallel to JRF, as well as along parts of the paved trail and the boardwalks (oddly enough the bridges weren't covered in ice). There is more ice on the other side of the trail going up to Fox Run. In addition there are trail closures on both sides of the Nature Center due to trail maintenance. Nevertheless we enjoyed a nice walk - just be very careful. :-) Hopefully by the time your hike starts most of the ice will have melted.

    Looks like good weather tomorrow. It'll be about 60 degrees warmer than it was a week or so ago--how often can you say that?
