Conservancy trips, led by our staff and experienced volunteers, explore the wilder side of Hanover with snowshoeing, birding, family hikes, habitat demonstrations, wildflower walks, and history tours.  Members receive a seasonal colorful trip card before public announcement. Thanks to member and corporate support, outdoor trips are free and most are open to all.
