Free Weekend Programs
LARPD offers exciting ranger-led adventures almost every weekend. These programs are great for families and individuals. Most do not require advance registration but some do (please check descriptions).
Click here to see a flyer detailing this month's nature programs. There is no charge for the programs, but there is a $5 parking fee at both entrances to Sycamore Grove Park. Donations are also requested to support the program ($2 per person suggested).

If you are between ages 9 to 13, you can join the wild times! Each winter and spring we spend Saturdays in the park hiking, playing games, wading into the pond and learning about our natural world. Meets twice a month and includes two overnight camp outs. Check the "Outdoor Recreation" pages of the LARPD Classes and Programs Brochure to learn more.
Summer Nature Camp

Join a ranger to explore the park after the sun goes down and discover how nocturnal animals find their way in the dark. This program is priced for groups of up to 20. For more information, please visit the Hoot Owl page
