11:00 AM  –  12:30 PM


Are you new to Tyler or a visitor who has never explored the trails outside the deer fence?  Join Tyler docent Dave Charlton for a monthly series of leisurely walks on the Tyler Trails.  We will spend one to one and a half hours learning to find our way in the natural areas while discovering seasonal changes in the landscape and the flora and fauna that inhabit it. We'll keep to easy walking trails where you can feel free to bring the family. As we approach spring, things start to change quickly.  Trees start to leaf out, spring flowers begin to bloom, and woodland creatures start to reappear.

Check in at the Visitor Center, where you'll meet your guide.  As with any walk on the Tyler trails, sturdy shoes are suggested.  Participants should bring water and perhaps a walking stick.  PLEASE NOTE: Strollers may not be ideal on some of our trails.  We recommend a carrier if you bring an infant or young child. 

About your guide: Dave is a long-time Tyler volunteer and naturalist.  He is a founding member of our docent program and has recently completed training in the PA Master Naturalist program.
