Hathaway Preserve at Ross Run, 1866 E Baumbauer Road, Wabash, IN 46992

Mary Thornton Nature Preserve
Many new preserves will open in 2016 — and they all need signs. Help create the signs that will greet preserve visitors for years to come. We will work in the heated barn. Supplies and refreshments provided. Presented by the Kissel Family

Wing Haven, 180 W 400 N, Angola, IN, 46703
Take to the trails under a Full Snow Moon and enjoy shadow play across hilly topography. If it’s cloudy, bring a flashlight to make our own shadows. Meet in the studio for hot coffee and cocoa before we venture out.
Presented by Shane Perfect, Wing Haven Caretaker

Presented by: Bill Harmsen, Asherwood Caretaker, and Jason Kissel
