Natural Christmas

Join us for an afternoon of festivities on Saturday, December 10th, from 3-6PM.

You deserve to spend a few hours this holiday season surrounded by the natural beauty of The Ridges Sanctuary. Stroll down the softly lit Hidden Brook Boardwalk and join us in our beautifully decorated Kaye Cabin, while sipping on warm cider, eating delicious cookies, and listening to holiday music. This program offers a wreath-making workshop, holiday crafts, and even marshmallows and chestnuts around the open fire. Guided hikes and tours of the Range Light are available throughout the event.

Natural Christmas is free, with the exception of the optional wreath making workshop that happens during the event. Wreath making costs $25 per wreath and includes enough materials for one beautifully decorated wreath!

This year’s Ridges Reads Book Club Presents: Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer.

Join us as we discuss Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants. Our annual winter book club will meet every three weeks starting on January 10th and will be offered both in person and virtually! Virtual discussions will take place on Tuesday evenings from 6:00 pm-8:00 pm at the Cook-Albert Fuller Nature Center. In person discussions will take place via Zoom on Thursday evenings from 6:00 pm-8:00 pm. Each discussion in the series will focus on one of the five sections in the book. All book club discussions are free. We ask that you register in advance as we have limited space available for both programs.
