Palm Beach County’s Department of Environmental Resources Management has announced 10 new adventures in its Spring 2016 Adventure Awaits series of events. These are opportunities for naturalist-guided tours and more through the county’s most beautiful natural habitats.

And it’s free! All you have to do is show up and be ready to have fun.

The 10 events in this newly announced series go through May 2016 and include sunset hikes, cycling and paddling tours, an onsite nature photography skills class and one where participants explore and admire the night sky.

“This series offers guided adventures through our natural areas, so that participants can feel comfortable returning to experience more of these places that make Palm Beach County so special,” PBC Environmental Resources Management director Rob Robbins said in a press release.

Most of these events require registration, because space is limited. Each adventure offers a different experience—some are more geared to beginner level participants, while others are for experienced nature lovers.
