LOWER MAKEFIELD >> The public is invited to celebrate autumn’s beauty on Sunday, September 22 from 12 to 3 p.m. at a special Open House at the Five Mile Woods Nature Preserve. Located in Lower Makefield, the Preserve has many interesting trails with a wide variety of woodland plants.
Guided nature walks suitable for adults and children will focus on signs of fall that can be found in the Woods including seeds, nuts, and colorful leaves. Enjoy the outdoors, bring your children, and learn about the interesting things that you can find in the Woods. In addition, the Woods Headquarters Building will be open and you can observe a collection of live turtles, frogs and salamanders that make their homes in the Woods.
