Gain valuable hands-on outdoor experience and explore Matthews Nature Preserve, a closed conservation property alongside Limestone Creek.

A Land Trust Members-Only Event!

Get back to basics as you explore our conservation property on Limestone Creek and spend the weekend learning how to increase your comfort level and knowhow in the outdoors. Through both expert-led demonstrations and hands-on practice, you’ll have the opportunity to learn how to utilize natural resources to survive and thrive in the wild.

Through this immersive experience, you’ll leave with a greater sense of self-sufficiency and a deeper connection and appreciation for the natural world.
