Prairie Ridge offers walks for all ages, plans preschool program

Posted December 29, 2011

Prairie trail at Prairie Ridge Ecostation

Prairie Ridge Ecostation in west Raleigh, a wonderful place to explore, has some Tuesday morning walks scheduled.

These are great for all ages. A naturalist will be there to answer questions about what you see on a one-mile walk. One note: The trails are natural and uneven, but a jogging stroller should do fine along them.

The walks are scheduled from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m Jan. 10, Jan. 24, Feb. 7, Feb. 21, March 6 and March 20. It might be a great activity if your kids are tracked out, for instance. Feb. 21 also is a teacher workday for Wake County kids attending a traditional calendar school. Preregistration is required. Kids ages 15 years and younger must be with a registered adult. It's free.

For details, contact Cathy Fergen at or 919.733.7450, ext. 671.

Cathy also tells me that she's working to start up a preschool program for kids ages 4 and 5 in the spring. These 90-minute parent and child classes will be monthly. Registration will be required as space will be limited. I'll have more about the program as we get closer. You also can contact Cathy for more information.

Prairie Ridge Ecostation is part of the N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences.
