Kids just don’t get outside enough anymore! Let one of our staff expose them to the wonders of the outdoors on a guided nature discovery hike. We’ll identify and provide fun facts about several plants and animals, and explain their roles in the ecosystem. Groups are welcome to walk the trails on their own, but we provide this option because some teachers/chaperones find it more comfortable to be led by a trail guide. We also recommend this program for large groups that need rotation options. While this program meets curriculum standards for specific grade levels, it also works well for an audience consisting of the general public or a range of different ages. Please wear appropriate hiking shoes and layers.
