Tour the Avonlea Badlands

The Avonlea Badlands are truly a remarkable and unique environment. It is interesting to see how the seasons, weather, and time of day change this unique habitat. Visitors in the early morning are treated to a variety of bird songs. The shadows of evening are a photographer's dream. The stifling heat of high noon is astounding on a hot day as you drop into the desert-like bottom. June is an awesome time to tour as plant and bird life abound, but anytime is great. Contact the museum for tours.
