There is no better way than to celebrate spring than to get out into the fresh air and take a hike! This April from the 11 -13, the Stamford Museum and Nature Center located on 39 Scofieldtown Rd, in Stamford is offering three days of hiking perfect for a family expedition. To start off, participants will pick up a passport on the website for exact programming offered each day. Members can participate free and non-member participation is also free with gate admission.

The week kicks off on Tuesday, April 11 with "RecycleMania Day" that will highlight the opening of the Center's new Recycled ReCreations Makerspace in the Stamford Museum. Here visitors can create and build with a variety of recycled materials. Later, join museum staff for hikes to the Rotten Log Hotel to meet nature's recyclers, discover the cycles of the seasons, and more.

Forest and Farm adventures will be the highlight on April 12 with an awesome annual adventure scavenger hunt! Favorites of this popular event includes: the Hay Hike on the Farm, Scat and Signs Hike, and more forest and farm fun!

The week wraps up on April 13 with Wild Water Day! Hikers will marvel at perennial favorites such as the Center's Vernal Pool and Stream hikes, along with a special"hike" through our Powerful yet Fragile: Connecticut's Waterways photography exhibition in the Stamford Museum. It will be fun to learn how water plays a role in the lives of all the Heckscher WILD! creatures that make the center their home.
