Events range from "fun on the farm" activities and eco-education to historical lectures and re-enactments to festivals celebrating the season, active events ranging from beach volleyball, ziplining through nature to 5k runs and walks to cycling; arts and culture that celebrate native artisans; marine life education for all ages, fishing, snorkeling and everyone's favorite - the annual migration of the Monarch butterflies.
