Nature Preserve Expedition

In addition to Summer Reading, you can further your adventures this summer by participating in our special Nature Preserve Expedition for all ages from June-August. Come in for an Expedition Kit and visit 4 local nature preserves to complete your map for a chance to win a $50 gift card to the local business of your choice.
