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.

  • No registration required unless noted.
  • Dress for the weather in layers, with sturdy foot gear (we go out rain or shine).  Many trips are designed for families with young children.
  • Pets – We love our dogs too, but please leave them at home unless they are a service animal.
  • Past Trips: See where we went and what we did here!
