Each hour long session includes a hike and exploration, discussion and a craft.

Last week we were scared out of the woods by ticks, so I am highly recommending using bug spray with deet and wearing light colored clothing (pants and long-sleeves if it is not too hot but at the very least white socks pulled up to the knees like a 1980’s NBA player.)
