 A hands-on outdoor educational program. If possible, students will be divided into two groups: Grades K-5 and Grades 6-12.  

(This winter, the program was suspended due to lack of enrollment. If we can get 10 people prepaid, we can get them to open it back up for us.)

What to bring: Sunblock, brimmed hat and sunglasses for outdoors, walking/hiking shoes. Don't bother with a stroller, even an off-road stroller. If there is a walk/hike, it will be very rough riding. Strap baby on, or walk with toddlers. Older kids can stay in a big group with the guide.

Bring water and maybe snacks, or a packed lunch.
Baby wipes and hand sanitizer might be good, because they will probably be in the dirt at some point.

REGISTRATION CLOSES at midnight on 5/16/16, after which time NO REFUNDS will be processed.
