Make Bernheim your spring break destination! We’ve planned a special week of daily drop-in activities and guided nature hikes for children of all ages. Bernheim also offers on-your-own hiking, fishing, picnicking, wildlife viewing, and opportunities for free play at our Children’s Play Garden – not to mention the fields, forests and creeks you are welcome to roam.
Discovery Stations Daily: 11 AM – 2 PM; Visitor Center; FREE, donations welcome
Hands-on Discovery Stations, featuring a variety of nature, science, art, and play activities, will be set up daily at the Visitor Center for families to explore at their leisure. Bernheim staff and Volunteer Naturalists will be on hand to help bring each Discovery Station to life!
Nature Hike Daily: 2 PM – 3 PM; Visitor Center; FREE, donations welcome
Bernheim staff and Volunteer Naturalists will lead a guided nature hike through Bernheim’s spring landscape each afternoon. As you explore the arboretum and forest, you and your family will be challenged to connect with nature in new and exciting ways!
Groups of five or more (not required for individuals and families) are advised to make arrangements at least one day in advance by contacting Whitney Wurzel, Manager of Nature-based Education, by email or call (502) 955-8512.
