    Geology Hike


    Join us for a geo-hike to look for evidence of what lies above and beneath the rolling hills and connect to Piedmont’s unique geologic past. The walk will also focus on natural and manmade factors that continue to shape the region and create an ecosystem we call home. We will explore the Preserve’s Forest Discovery Trail and the Salem Creek bed. Please wear good walking shoes and dress for the weather.

    Salem Creek Stomp


    Come splash in Salem Creek and explore the “beach” area at Gateway Nature Preserve! We’ll look for animal tracks, creek critters and do a creek scavenger hunt. Additionally, we’ll conduct water quality experiments, and classify creek critters to investigate the health of our creek. Please wear closed-toe shoes that can get wet and prepare for a great time!
