High Knob Naturalist Rally 2023

Thiss year's High Knob Naturalist Rally was on September 23rd, 2023 from 10am-4pm! Thank you for attending!

Welcome to the rally! Here's what to expect!

This year's rally is not only a fun way to engage with the natural world, but is also the celebration of our 25th anniversary! As always, we have several enjoyable presentations speaking on topics such as water quality, reptiles, etc! We also will have guided hikes and live music. In celebration of our 25th anniversary, cupcakes and free lunch will be provided for all attendees! Make sure you pre-register to secure your spot today! 

When it comes to hikes, they fill up fairly quickly. In order to minimize stress for our hike leaders, we suggest that you pre-register ahead of time so that you are guaranteed one of our limited slots for the hikes being led this year! There are hikes occurring at 10am, as well as 2:00pm. The schedule is below for you to look over them prior to registration.
