Nature in the Know

August 13, 2022 - Greenwich, CT


Learn how to read nature's many signposts! From buds and blooms to tracks and trails.

Attendees will come away with a better understanding of the habits and habitats of the natural life all around us, 365 days a year.

Ryan MacLean is the Education Specialist at the Greenwich Audubon Center in Greenwich, CT. During weekly Nature in the Know journeys, he guides visitors of all ages along the sanctuary trails, pointing out key signposts as participants learn how to unravel the natural stories every creature tells as they make their way through the cycle of life. From eggs in nests to seasonal flyways, and back again, participants walk the trails and discover the back story of all the natural world has to share with us.

This IN-PERSON program has a limited capacity of 25 people and takes place outdoors.

Tickets MUST be purchased in advance through this online ticket sales page. There will be no ticket sales at the door the day of the program.
