YHikes! Youth Nature Hike
6712 Blantyre Road, Warrenton | 10am – 12pm

Join The Clifton Institute for their monthly Saturday YHikes! (Youth Hikes). Families with children ages 6 and older are invited to come along to explore the field station and learn about the animals, fungi and plants that live here. You never know what we’ll find! This program is an intentionally unstructured opportunity for families to explore nature together. They pick a different trail to explore each month and usually move slowly to stop often to look at and learn about all the different species that live in Northern Virginia.

PLEASE NOTE: We have recently changed the timing of this program to 10am-12pm. This event is free. Closed-toe, preferably waterproof, shoes or boots, hats, sunscreen, bug spray, and water bottles are recommended.
