Nature/Sustainable Living Lecture Series

Local experts have joined efforts with the Mt. Helix Park Foundation to offer a free Nature/Sustainable Living Lecture Series to the public.  The goal is to bring engaging professionals who are passionate about their fields of interest to teach the community about conservation, ecology and nature, in an interesting, practical and fun way.   Whether you are looking to cultivate a new hobby such as bird watching, landscaping or composting, or simply want to enjoy a beautiful morning in the amphitheater, it is another great reason to visit the Park!
