“Specials” are classes and activities that are unique to the Naturalist – their interest, experiences, expertise, etc. Specials are chosen by the individual Naturalist so topics may vary throughout the groups. Specials may be offered (1) by Trail Group or (2) as a choice wherein all participants gather together, listen to the Naturalists explain their offerings, then choose which one they would like to attend (based on proper group ratios).

Educational Special

These Specials are more educational-based, but not anything that has been (or will be) offered during your stay. Most Educational Specials are a tangent or narrowed-scope of our already existing curriculum. Examples: Fossil Hunting, Ornithology, Mycology, Deer Tracking, etc.

Recreational Special

Recreational Specials may include a combination of sports, crafts, hikes, and new games.
