What's Included

Elizabeth and Nancy are wonderfully knowledgeable naturalists - between them you're sure to know the name of every plant species you'll find on your outing! As part of the Biothon, Hitchcock's annual spring biodiversity event and fundraiser, Elizabeth and Nancy are aiming to find 100 species on their foray. Come join the fun, enjoy the return of spring in the Valley, and benefit the Hitchcock Center, too! Please consider a gift to help support the team - Biothon funds will directly support Hitchcock's year-round environmental education programs. Pledges can be made on a per species basis (10 cents, 25 cents, or a dollar a species), or as a lump sum. Whichever you prefer and whatever amount feels comfortable. You can donate through this registration form, or online at Hitchcock’s website (hitchcockcenter.org).
