From February 2016 to November 2016, a group of adults will immerse themselves in the region's natural areas, learning about natural history topics including geology, animal tracking, birding and ethnobotany.
Monthly adventures give you opportunities to dive into the natural world by learning through hands on experiences. If you crave the behind-the-scenes story, like to learn by doing and don’t mind getting muddy, this year-long journey could be for you.
When: Classes are usually held on the third Saturday of the month (exceptions are for the last two classes; see the class schedule) typically running from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Where: Locations will vary. Registered class members will receive all logistical information via email at least one week prior to the class.
Cost: $300 per person for the series
