Today’s Guided nature Program…


Join us for this installment of our Guided Nature Programs — Bogus’ Late Bloomers! This late summer wildflower and berry walk will emphasize the adaptations of plants for seed dispersal and survival during the colder winter months. The role of plants of the local Bogus Basin ecosystem will be discussed while on the trail looking for the showy and inconspicuous late bloomers. Participants in this program should have a good chance at seeing and taste-testing some of the edible berries that call Bogus Basin home. This program is only one of the many guided nature programs offered this summer.

Meet your Guide!

Hit the trail with Ray Vizgirdas, retired Wildlife Biologist and lifelong Naturalist for this installment of our Guided Snowshoe Program series. With over three decades of experience working for state and federal agencies, Ray knows a thing or two about the outdoors (he has literally authored guidebooks about the flora at Bogus Basin!). On select Saturday afternoons, Ray will cover a new topic relevant to the time of year. Whether it’s winter animal adaptations or emergency snow shelters, you’re bound to learn a thing or two on your outing.
