Maybe you’d like to take a guided hike through the woods or a field of wildflowers, or see how maple syrup is made right from the source, or even pitch in on a conservation project. The Westchester County nature centers host a great variety of interpretive and volunteer programs every weekend of the year. Come out and meet our naturalists and curators, who make natural science fun for everyone. See what's going on at the nature centers.
