Bernheim Backroads January Tour Cancelled

By Wren Smith

Due to winter weather road conditions the January Backroads tour has been cancelled. Join us for future  Bernheim Backroads programs.

These provide the perfect way to enjoy a guided tour of Bernheim’s best hidden spots, such as the Wison Creek  stream restoration site,  beaver ponds, and Bernheim’s historic fire tower. In early spring  Bernheim’s wetlands will be enlivened by the activities of breeding  amphibians.

These tours are led by a team of  engaging naturalists, who are trained to help you make meaningful connections and have fun experiencing the natural and historic treasures of Bernheim’s backroads.  Although there will be some hiking (weather permitting), much of this 5 hour driving tour will take place from the warmth and comfort of a passenger van. Frequent stops are made for closeup encounters with the natural world and unexpected delights. Bald and golden eagles are occasional winter visitors!

Bring your own sack lunch and a beverage for a noon time stop at the Bean House. Recommended for adults or children 12 years old and up. Space is limited, so make your reservations early.

Hours: 10:00 A.M.  – 3:00 P.M.

Sunday, January 26,  February 23, March 30

Fee: $20 Members per tour  ($25 Non- members per tour)
