 One of our most popular field trips is a visit to the Challenge Course. Our course is located on a secluded wooded shelf along a river. Each element has a story and a physical task for your group to accomplish. It is designed to encourage group cooperation and problem-solving skills and is appropriate for businesses and organizations as well as school groups.

Discover the wild lands and rivers of the North Coast. Our naturalist/guides will help you custom build a trip, perfect for your group or organization. Popular choices: explore the Mendocino tide pools or canoe the Big River.

We also offer service learning! This is a form of experiential education. It integrates meaningful community service with instruction and hands-on activities. Project examples: Trail building and maintenance, stream monitoring and restoration, non-native plant removal, historic structure restoration.
