Come make history with LandPaths! During the next two years, LandPaths is installing a brand spankin' new trail system and you can be a part of it. New trails will be used for LandPaths programs.

There are tasks for everyone!     

No experience necessary.  LandPaths will provide necessary tools, but feel free to bring your own if you have them.  Helpful tools include loppers and hand saws.

iRead Outside: Stories in the Garden provides opportunities for families to combine a love of reading with a love of being outdoors. Our goal is to increase the percentage of family members reading to children daily, while at the same time encouraging children and families to explore nature and get outside together. This summer, LandPaths brings to you a series of consistent weekly reading events outside, anchored at Bayer Farm, that models reading out loud to children. Activities include nature exploration in the garden, modeling techniques for reading out loud  and a raffle/book give away! These reading sessions are best suited for infants ages 0-6 years old but, older siblings and family is welcomed to join us.
