Eco-Book Club and Hike

If you are an outdoor enthusiast and book lover, this reading and hiking combo is for you! During each session, a book about an aspect of the natural world will be discussed followed by a BYO brown bag lunch. Participants can then head out into the woods for a guided hike tailored to the theme of the book. Book discussions start at 11am. Book copies are available through O.W.W.L., STLS, and Monroe County Libraries.

This program is free and open to the public, but advanced registration is preferred.
