Upcoming Outdoor Programs: Look at Winter Wildlife and Learning to Coexist with our Wild Neighbors

Later this Month and into early December, the City of Rochester Hills continues to offer programs for people to get outdoors and learn about wildlife right here in our city. The City’s Parks & Natural Resources Department, through their Outdoor Engagement unit, will be holding multiple programs for individuals and families. Join our naturalists, Lance and Lauren, as they look at Winter Wildlife or join them to learn more about how you as a resident can coexist with wildlife here in Rochester Hills. In addition to the scheduled programs, special interest groups and scouting groups can also contact us to set up a program or hike with our naturalists this winter. Below is a breakdown of upcoming programs; also check our website in the near future to see about other programs coming in January.
