From the marshy banks of the Lieutenant River to the woodland walk, the Museum’s twelve acres contain remarkable biodiversity. Join Swap for a naturalist walk geared for all ages along the Artists’ Trail to explore and experience the wonder of the native flora and fauna. After the walk, Swap demonstrates how to create drawing tools out of sticks and stems found on campus. Participants will begin their own naturalist journal using plant life from the walk.

Dress for outdoor walking. All materials provided.
