2023 Trails & Sails Walk at Camp Denison


Once again, NSNP is proud to host an Essex Heritage Trails & Sails event at Camp Denison. This year’s event will be Wednesday, September 20 from 10-11:30am. People of all ages are encouraged to attend!


Are you aware that our local woods and wetlands are home to hundreds of unique and fascinating animals like salamanders that drop their tails in defense, frogs that freeze solid in winter, and weasels and foxes that climb trees? Join us for a walk through the woods of Camp Denison where we learn more about these unusual animals. We will overturn logs, search for tracks, use nets to catch and observe our native neighbors, and talk about why it is important to protect the habitats they call home.


Please wear comfortable shoes that can get muddy and dress for the weather!


This is a FREE event, but please register below so we can contact you in the event of a cancelation.
