  • This event has passed.

Enjoy the natural beauty of Mt. Cuba’s gardens, forests, and meadows this fall and winter as you experience the change of seasons – from autumn’s foliage to winter’s serenity. Become familiar with our native flora as you improve your health and explore the extensive walking trails in our natural lands. Each walk will be different and will cover approximately 2.5 to 3 miles. Dress for the weather, bring a water bottle, and be prepared for hilly (sometimes steep) and uneven terrain.

This program takes place in person in Mt. Cuba Center natural lands on Three Thursdays, October 19, 26, and November 2 (Rain Date: Thursday, November 9).
