The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

Event Details

Please note: Masks are required for all in-person, indoor and outdoor program participants, with the exception of those younger than 2 years old and those with a medical condition or disability that prevents them from wearing one, per state guidelines.

What’s more fun in the winter than a long hike to get your blood pumping followed by a campfire with your favorite comfort food? Strap on your hiking boots, bring your favorite mug and a can of soup (non-cream) or chili. We will have two pots on the fire – one for chili and the other for soup to add your contribution. We’ll let them simmer over an open flame while we set out for the bridge! Once back, enjoy a piping hot mug of food warmed over the open fire. Given the nature of the program, we cannot adhere to any dietary restrictions.
