Bohemia Ecological Preserve Workshop Series: Come experience & learn at LandPaths' Bohemia Ecological Preserve.  We’ll join local experts in various topics for outdoor classes on this beautiful 1000 acre property.

The Serpentine Stroll: We'll join SSU Professor Emeritus Rolfe Erickson on a leisurely stroll through the serpentine formations of the Bohemia Ecological Preserve. Learn how serpentine, the state rock, originated in the ocean bottom and now extends through much of the west county, its mineral content affecting the landscape and forest foliage in dramatic ways that make the Preserve so unique. This hike will be 2-3 miles over moderate-steep terrain.
