Previously, DCLIR held a selection of Summer Safari classes every year, but we have scaled back in recent years.  These are usually offered offsite and have included hikes and tours.   The fee for any scheduled summer activities is included in your previously paid membership fee. Any Sumemr Safari activities will be announced in an DCLIR e-mail to members and a limited amount of flyers will be available at the DCLIR office at NWTC.  Information will include date, time and contact person.  Sign-up may be required for participation in an activity.
