Take a tour of our Welch Trail Education Center, which houses our hardworking Conservation Corps from spring through fall. Hear the exciting work completed by our 2018 crew and what is on deck for the upcoming season. Together we hike to the summit of Stockbridge Mountain, along the way we will encounter two unique rock formations, Hippo Rock and Cave Shelter. We will also visit, Stockbridge Shelter and the Baileytown Cemetery. Basic cardiovascular fitness is required for this hike, which contains a moderately steep climb.
Hike will fill quickly, so please RSVP promptly with the number of people joining you. Please also let us know if you have any questions or special needs.
