Traveling Naturalist Programs
Want to get you class, camp, or other group outdoors? At our Traveling Naturalist Programs you can select a location, like a park or a trail, and one of our trained staff will meet you there to guide you through nature! Whether you'd like to get wet and wild in a creek or stick to the trails we will have something for your group! Some of the topics you can pick from are:
If the location you want to go has a creek or river, we can run one of these. We will bring along nets, buckets, and worksheets that we can use to assess the health of a body of water by looking for macro invertebrates!
Kayaking [Currently Unavailable]
With our ability to travel anywhere with our kayaks, we are able to meet you at a more convenient location, if our local Lake Galena of Peace Valley Park is not best for you. We will provide necessary safety equipment, a brief how to kayak lesson and our staff will point out and educate about flora and fauna we pass as we go on our adventure!
Our staff will meet you at your location and lead you on a hike through nature! We will bring along a backpack full of games that are used to show how animals perceive their environments as we go!
Have your own idea of what you'd like to learn or cover? Let us know and we will work with you to create a new program!
Please notify us upon booking what you would like the theme of your traveling naturalist program to be, and please book at least two weeks in advance so that we can give parks notice that we will be there!
