* Please note that the April 25 issue of Alumni Connection incorrectly listed the time of this event from 12:15 – 1:15 p.m. The correct time is 10 a.m. – 1 p.m., and we ask that you arrive no later than 9:50 a.m. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.

Note: This tour includes walking across rough terrain with steep inclines and is, therefore, unfortunately not suitable for those with mobility challenges. This is a family-friendly event recommended for children eight years of age and older. One adult supervisor is required for each child under the age of 10.
