Educational Walks

The Friends of Edgewood offers free docent-led wildflower hikes in Edgewood Park on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, March through May.

Friends of Edgewood's expert docents share insights about the park's extraordinary biodiversity and help visitors spot some of the dozens of different species that bloom throughout the season. Each week there is something new to discover! For families with young children, shorter, kid-friendly hikes are offered on select Saturdays and Sundays. Additional hikes are offered throughout the year. 

The hikes are free, but you must register in advance on Eventbrite at friendsofedgewood.eventbrite.com. New hikes are typically added two weeks in advance, so check back throughout the season or follow Friends of Edgewood on Eventbrite to be notified when hikes are added. Learn about all Edgewood hikes at the Friends of Edgewood website, or email info@FriendsofEdgewood.org for more information.
