Yoga - Thursdays, 6-7 p.m. For ages 18 and up. $10/person. Classes in hatha yoga, a centuries-old practice designed to bring the mind, body, and spirit into harmony. Some of the benefits of yoga include relaxation, stress reduction, improved flexibility, and increased vitality. Participants should wear loose-fitting clothing and bring their own mats.

Guided Nature Walks - Sundays, 1-2 p.m. Free and for all ages. Explore the trails at Fern Forest with a park naturalist while learning about native South Florida habitats. Call to confirm staff availability, 954-357-5198.

EcoAction Days - First Saturday of the month, October-May, 9 a.m.-noon. For ages 13 and up. Volunteers clean up trash, plant native plants, and/or remove non-native invasive plants. Students can earn community service hours for graduation and college scholarships, and others can help improve and preserve the environment. Participants should dress appropriately with long sleeves, long pants, and closed-toe shoes that can get dirty. Participants should also bring gloves, a hat, sunscreen, insect repellent, and drinking water. Extra tools such as shovels, rakes, and hand pruners are welcome. Volunteers must fill out an application before participating.

Bring an instrument if you like (no amplifiers, please). The popular audience-participation event, formerly called Jammin', has been led by the same group of volunteer musicians since its inception in 1985-86.

Nature Tots - Second Thursday of the month, 10-11 a.m. For ages 2-4 accompanied by an adult. $5/child. Kids and their parents can join a naturalist and learn about nature with themed age-appropriate activities. Preregistration is required. (No program in November and December.)
