LRWP’s free nature programs and events serve all ages!

Public Hikes

Saturday, June 23, 9:00 to 10:30am. Sensory Hike led by Christy Thomson Meet at the Eagle Marsh barn, 6801 Engle Road, Fort Wayne. When you join us on this hike we will show you how to tune into all of your 5 senses while enjoying nature at the marsh. What will we see, smell, touch, hear, and what can we find on our sensory journey that has a taste? You'll have to join us to find out! Sponsored by Little River Wetlands Project. Free. Contact or 260-478-2515 for information.


Field Trips for classes/groups can also be arranged.

Apply to bring a youth group to a LRWP preserve.

Teachers, let us know what you're studying and we can tailor a program that's relevant to the classroom. Scouts, our staff and volunteers can work with you to meet requirements for different badges. Trips are arranged on a first come, first served basis.

Adult groups may also wish to visit our preserves or volunteer. Please call us if your employee group, club, hiking group, birding group, church group, senior program or other community group is interested in a guided visit or might like to volunteer at an event or for stewardship.

Offsite presentations can be given about our preserves and programs to businesses, clubs or other community groups through special arrangements with our staff. Classroom presentations on wetland topics may also be arranged on a limited basis.
