    A highlight annual event.  Combine learning, laughter and camaraderie. NO experience is necessary!

    If you are good at riddles, then this is the place to be! But, be prepared to meet your match. Michael's riddles are challenging, evocative and ever so finely crafted.

    This is an awesome and exhilarating way to learn about local natural history. Michael’s contagious enthusiasm, his keen insight into the intricacies of nature, and the countless anecdotes of his experiences as a naturalist always make for a very entertaining evening.

    Participants will be divided into teams that will compete to answer riddles and identify items from nature. Is there a young, dynamic, capable team ready to conquer all? Or perhaps, 2 out of 3?
