Each year, North Shore Land Alliance organizes a series of guided tours of local parks and nature preserves throughout Nassau and Suffolk Counties.  These Walks in the Woods are designed to connect more people with the natural open spaces in our communities. These walks are led by knowledgeable leaders and are open to the public. Each walk normally last for an hour or two.

Listed below is the remainder of our 2014 Walks in the Woods program.  Our 2015 Walks in the Woods Calendar is coming soon.
