If you do not find a chapter near you, or if you choose not to be part of a Wild Ones chapter, you may choose to be a Partner At Large (PAL). A PAL is not assigned to a chapter but joins a group of members who work solo in their own communities or simply enjoy the benefits of a Wild Ones membership. Either way – as a chapter member or as a PAL, you receive all the benefits of membership. Join Now!

The visitor center will open at 9:30 for a meet and greet. We will have coffee and tea available. We suggest you bring a refillable mug and a water container for your hike,  as well as your own tableware and utensils (bowl, spoon, fork, napkins..).

We will gather around 10am for two hikes around Caesar Creek Gorge area. We will have expert guides on hand to lead the way. One hike will be a fairly easy walk around the lake. The other hike will be a bit more strenuous. If you prefer not to hike at all, you may remain in the visitor center until the groups return. We will have some other activities to be announced as we get closer. Please invite your members and friends. This event is free.

Volunteers are making soup, and we can use more if you choose. If not, you  may choose to bring items to share such as bread, crackers, any other snacks or a dessert are appreciated but not required.  Either way, we will have plenty of food to warm us up after the hike!
