Bird Seed Sale Pick-up (for orders placed by April 9) takes place Saturday, April 16, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Bird watching is more fun when you can attract them to your own yard, so fill your feeders with one of SLNC’s special mixes. Friends of SLNC Members receive a 10 percent discount on all orders. Orders can be placed online or by phone.

Nature Egg Hunt takes place Saturday, April 16, from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Many creatures lay eggs in the depths of the woods. This activity for families and individuals will challenge participants to find these “special” hidden eggs throughout the wilds of the forest. Solve the “Who Done It Mystery” of the special eggs to earn one of many prizes. Cost is $5/person for Friends of SLNC Members; $8/person for non-members. Register online or by phone.

Trails are open daily, from sunrise to sunset.

SLNC Visitors’ Center is open Tuesday-Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, from noon to 5 p.m.
