Field Trip to Nelson Rocks Canopy

Sat, 2 Nov 2013 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

8 a.m.-5 p.m.
Field trip departs and returns to the parking lot of the Frances Plecker Education Center, Edith J. Carrier Arboretum

Experience over a mile of fun through the Nelson Rocks canopy. Enjoy 12 exhilarating zip lines, three adventurous sky bridges and a 40-foot assisted rappel back to the forest floor with a canopy tour. Or for a rock-climbing adventure like no other, registrants can choose to experience the Via Ferrata, which offers a mile of fixed-anchor, pro-guided rock climbing with a sky bridge transition between rock faces.

No experience needed for either tour. Just be in relatively good shape, and weight between 70 and 250 pounds. Enjoy an all-day van tour visiting regional sites that are home to some of our area’s most incredible trees and nature resources.

Pack your lunch. Cost: $90 per person, transportation included, pre-registration required online at
