Guided Tours and Hikes


Nature Tour

A Nature Tour can open your eyes to the opportunities around you, reconnecting you to the vast network of life that is the natural world. Along the journey guides will shed light on otherwise overlooked aspects of the Earth we inhabit. Your understanding of the symbiotic relationship we share with our environment will deepen. Explore teachings of historical context, knowledge of environmental awareness, plant identification, animal tracking, and more about the land we walk. We hope to broaden your horizons, and open your mind to the endless possibilities along any journey!


Plant Tour

Journey with us as we observe different seasonal plants as they present themselves. Along the way we will discuss both the medicinal benefits and potential hazards of various local flora, as well as showcase the utility of the environment we inhabit. Differences in season, time, weather and location create diversity within the plant kingdom, making each tour unique. We invite you to grow along with us and strengthen your relationship with our local plant life!


Tree Tour

Join us on a fascinating journey to tour the world of trees! Our tour will include an in-depth discussion on the characteristics that make a tree a tree, and we will point out specific species that we encounter along the way. You will learn how to identify the trees we come across, and delve into their various uses, including their edible, medicinal, utilitarian, and hazardous properties.


Star Tour

Enjoy one of humanity’s earliest pastimes: stargazing! Our night sky inspires artists and amazes observers, but also directs how we measure time. It even guides us home, if we know how and what to look for. Experience our blend of story, science, and tradition as we journey on the Grandest Tour of All: Our Universe!


Wild Wander

Wander into the unknown. Our Wild Wander allows people to experience unfamiliar territory with the comfort of a guide. Wandering in unknown areas helps increase our awareness of the natural world and its beauty by advancing our observational senses. Being “wild” means we can also encounter the unexpected and must adapt quickly. Practice with adjusting to terrain changes, seasonal elements, and moving off-trail will better prepare you for the unknown wilderness, should you choose to journey on…
