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

Bring your family outside! Hike through O’Hara Woods Preserve with a naturalist. At designated stops along the way, we’ll pause to try our hand at fun wintertime activities. We might build snowmen, compete in Animal Olympics, play animal Simon Says, discover the age of a tree, listen to bird calls or play the Fox and Geese game. We’ll take advantage of this amazing season.

The program is geared toward 6-12 year olds, but the entire family is welcome.
