In The Field

Join BYLT for a monthly trek to some of our favorite destinations.

From guided and themed hikes on our 45+ miles of local trails to behind-the-scenes tours of our nature preserves and open spaces, you won’t want to miss “In the Field”!

Programs will be led by naturalists, scientists, local historians, land stewardship partners, and our own BYLT staff and board. Attendees can expect to learn more about the protected lands in our community. Group size will be small and space limited, so early registration is encouraged.

Everyone is welcome! “In the Field” events are open to the public with special discounts for BYLT members. Not a member? Join today!
