Register here:

It has been a long winter and young people need things to do that make them feel good. The Wednesday Morning Ecoexpeditions are an opportunity for children to step outside and explore in a way that balance play with purpose. These half day learning experiences will lead to wellness, fun, and new relationships as we use eco-themed activities to explore the nature in our city, learn about ourselves and each other, and build a better relationship with the world around us. We will be outside the whole time (rain or shine) laughing and learning.

What about COVID-19 Safety?

We know COVID-19 makes things challenging and we want to assure you we will do everything we can to make this a safe experience. Masks will be required. Distance will be maintained whenever possible. Outside air will be the only thing we breathe. The EcoExpediiton leaders have taken COVID-19 very seruiously throughout the pandemic and will continue to maintain safe protocols. Having your child join us would mean you are assuring me and the other families that you are also engaging in COVID-19 safe behaviors. If you sign up an agreement will be forwarded for you to sign that outlines what you are agreeing to.
