Biodiversity Walks

Offered every Friday at 10AM during the summer. Explore the unique habitats of the LLNF property, discover our flora and fauna, and see what's in season as you walk along our gently rolling trail.


Snake Slithers

This is a family program. Kids are welcome but we require them to be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult. In this fun class we'll look for snakes and learn more about the on-going research we undergo to study the different species found at our property. Tuesdays at 2:30 PM during July and August.


Bountiful Botanicals

Explore the bounty of nature through a series of hands-on, botanically focused workshops with the LLNF staff. In each class, participants will learn about the plants that inhabit Nantucket and their use in food, art, and culture. Sign up for one class or the whole series. This program is not intended for participants under the age of 18. Selected Mondays in the summer.
