Take your passion for nature to new heights and explore majestic trees like never before! In this two-hour experience at Shaw Nature Reserve, a certified tree-climbing instructor will teach you to ascend on your own into a tree canopy. The course is designed for the first-time climber.
Once there, you'll be able to sit on branches, limb-walk, lie in hammocks or relax in a suspended chair as you enjoy an inspiring birds-eye view of the world. Throughout the experience, you'll learn about forest canopy biodiversity and conservation close to home and around the world. Several vertical lines will be available, and climbers can choose to ascend more than one line as time allows. Climbers must be at least 8 years old. Space is limited to 12 climbers per session.
Two sessions are held each day.

Kids ages 3-5 can explore the fanciful world of Mother Goose and her friends through ballet at this free story time with dancing and movement.
Through story and song, the play shines a light on their dreams, their times with family and friends, and the trials and tribulations they faced as children living in a divided and segregationist city. A full chorus sets the tone with spirituals and anthems of the Civil Rights Movement such as "Amazing Grace," "Oh, Freedom," and "Woke Up This Morning." This production is a collaboration between The Black Rep and COCA.
