Calling all teens looking for some inspiration on where to hike and what to do outside this summer! Join our recreation coordinator for a hike and time to hang with teens from around the county for games and laughs. The program will also highlight recreational activities and hotspots to check out throughout the preserves.

Teen Connection will also be offered Aug. 14. Each program will offer unique elements, so grab some friends and join for either or both!
