Time: Open for visitation sunrise to sunset

Starting Friday, October 16th, SLT will have a story walk of Forest Bright, Forest Night at Peirson Woods. Grab the little ones for a storybook walk along a short trail to celebrate the fall season. Learn about the animals that make the forest their home by day and at night.

Someone is always awake in the forest, and someone else is always asleep!
