Celebrate National Trails Day and explore the world of living things usually considered "icky and yucky" and discover how amazing they really are. Visit the "Rotten Log Hotel" to discover the worms, fungi, and other decomposers that help to make soil. Search for snakes and salamanders in the stream beds and vernal pools, and discover how icky signs like scat can reveal who has been on the trails. Meet at the Overbrook Nature Center building.

About Stamford Museum and Nature Center
The Stamford Museum & Nature Center is dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of art and popular culture, the natural and agricultural sciences, and history. The museum is a vital cultural and educational resource for the community, and a focal point for family activity and interaction. It seeks to inspire creativity, foster self-discovery, promote environmental stewardship, and nurture an appreciation for lifelong learning through exhibitions, educational programs, and special events. Enjoy a picnic on the Meadow, walk over 80 acres of nature trails, drop in to the Heckscher Farm and say hello to the animals, and don't miss the latest exhibition in the Bendel Mansion Museum Galleries.
