Field Trips

This is a great hands-on nature exploration-gives students a chance to see things in their habitat.-Amy F.

What a fun and educational time we had at the Harvest Moon Hike! The naturalist was able to connect with all age levels and make it fun not only for the kids but adults as well.  It was interactive and exciting to learn about the different animals at night, view the world through their senses and actually see some animals as well.  Thank you Maria.  Joelle R.
