Fall Family Fun: Scarecrow-Making     October 1st – 30th 

Visit Redwood Hill during the month of October to make a scarecrow. Use our supplies and/or bring any special items of your own to create a unique character. When you’re finished, bring your ‘hiker’ out on the trails and leave him for other trail visitors to admire.

Email us a photo of you with your scarecrow and we will post them all on Facebook on October 31st!

In keeping with our IRLC fall family fun tradition, make sure to wear your flannel plaid!

Autumn Hike @ Grand Lake Reserve     October 10th, 2020    9am – 1pm 

Grand Lake Reserve offers spectacular views of fall foliage.  This hike, for adults and older children, starts at Parking Lot 2 and heads down our Butterfield Landing Trail all the way to Butterfield Lake. Old lead mines are visible near the end of the trail.  We will take the Eagle Marsh Trail back, and search for birds and signs of other wildlife along the way. Geological formations along this hike hold interesting stories of the past.

Register here.  Limited spaces available.

Pine Cone Wreath-Making   November 1st – 30th  

Hike Redwood Hill Preserve and choose your favorite pine cones to use in creating a beautiful seasonal craft.  Let us know when you are coming and we will have all the supplies ready for your family.  We have three picnic tables and therefore room for three families at a time under social distancing protocol.
