Learn about land management, botanize, and share stories as we tour BMAP Member properties.

Every summer BMAP schedules three property tours at three different BMAP Member properties. Hosted by the landowners, our tours provide unique educational walks as each landowner guides us through their native habitat management practices and restoration story.


It's a comfortable learning experience and provides a welcoming space for BMAP Members and the broader public to meet other landowners who are passionate about habitat restoration. As we tour each property, take some time out during the walk to ask questions of the host and other knowledgeable landowners, to learn new field practices, or to "botanize" plants we see along the way.
