Free admission and open to everyone!

Hike Our Preserves (HOP!) is a new program that encourages kids to get healthy and earn free books while having fun in nature . . . and Wolf Tree Nature Trails is a great place from which to launch! Walking sticks and Wolf Tree medallions will be available to get you started. See you there!

What’s HOP and how does it work?

Get a walking stick from the SWMLC Office or HOP partner Bookbug, take a hike at one of the seven HOP! preserves, send us a selfie from the preserve, and get a medallion that’s unique to each preserve. The first 50 participants to walk the trails at all seven of these preserves will receive a $15 giftcard to Bookbug! The HOP program is geared toward children 4 years and up, but could be great for families with children of any age! Get all the details at

Summer is the perfect time to exercise, play outside, and read!
