Outdoor & Unplugged: A Walk in the Woods
Enjoy a guided family-friendly nature walk through Alnoba's 600 acres of forests, ponds, trails, fields and art collection.
Tickets $15 per person. All proceeds are donated to support Kensington’s Sawyer Park.
Walk roughly 90 minutes long on wooded trails over some uneven terrain. Limited to 12 people.
Unplug from your daily routines, breathe the fresh air, feel the earth beneath your feet and rediscover the wonder of being in nature.
Our well-informed volunteer guides will lead you across Alnoba’s 600 acres of walking trails, forests, fields, wetlands and our renowned outdoor art collection.
These tours are beautiful – and very different! – at every time of year. In winter, you can snowshoe across our fields and look for animal tracks. Watch the buds unfurl in spring and spot some of the rare flowers that dot our landscape. Chase butterflies in summer and soak up the splendor of the foliage in autumn.
Come experience Alnoba’s extraordinary home for yourself.
