Transitioning from fall to winter presents new opportunities to experience the outdoors. This week, discover, explore, and learn about the wilderness around you.

See Borderland State Park like never before! Attend the Full Moon Hike on Monday, October 29 from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. Participate in the 3-mile walk lit by the beautiful full moon. Plus, join the group for some delicious apple cider afterward.

Curious about the deer and wild turkeys you see each fall? Attend the Deer Trails & Turkey Tails interpretive program at Borderland State Park. Learn more about these animals and then get out on the trails to explore their habitat on Saturday, November 3, from 9:00 am to 10:30 am.

Also on Saturday, learn about other wild animals and their transition into winter with the Tracking Wildlife: Preparing for Winter program. Identify tracks and other wildlife activity during this two hour walk from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm at F. Glibert Hills State Forest. Space is limited so make sure you pre-register!
