Workshops & Field Trips

Dig into Nature

The Center's "Dig into Nature" events are announced at the start of fall and spring each year, and include workshops, natural history hikes and more. Our focus is providing you with a unique experience working alongside SSU faculty, students and other experts who study our local landscapes and can teach you new skills studying human-environment interactions. Many offerings are on weekends and free of charge.
