90-Minute Nature is an outdoor program that features small groups rotating through three themed stations. Registrants choose their start time and their group members, then cycle through three educator-led stations over a 90-minute time span.

Start times are 9AM, 10:30AM, 12:30PM or 2PM. Group size is limited to 8 people. Each registrant will receive a take-home activity.
