Discovery Path

Discovery Path   
This fun little trail has a lot to offer. Beginning on either side of the Environmental Center, each twist and turn showcases different settings and exhibits. The highlight of the Discovery Path is our newly added Pollinator Garden. With a wonderful splash of color, this garden brings beauty to Huber Woods as well as provides a safe haven for our pollinator friends. Other points of interest along the path include a berry patch, frog pond, boardwalk overlook, and more!
