Event details

How many countless times have you walked your dog around your neighborhood? Enrich yourself and your dog’s daily walks by joining a naturalist as we hike Rock Run with our furry friends. Let’s see what’s better — our dogs’ noses or our eyesight — as we keep a look out (or nose out) for wildlife that calls Rock Run home.
