Event description

Description

Did you know that long ago dinosaurs roamed GCSNA and the beach was only minutes away? Kids ages 10 -15 may join Friends of Government Canyon volunteers on a special WEEKDAY guided hike to explore the aquifer, geology and dinosaurs of GCSNA.

Who is Invited:

Open to ages 10 – 15 and their accompanying adults. Minors must be accompanied by a legal guardian. Participants must be capable of hiking a total of 5 miles; approximately 4 hours; over rugged terrain with some elevation gain. No pet please.

Registration & Fees

Reservations are required for BOTH the school child AND his/her accompanying adult. Only those registered will be allowed on the hike. Sorry, no group registrations. All Natural Area entry fees apply to this workshop.

When & Where to Meet

Arrive by 7:45 am. Meet at the Exhibit Gallery next to the Visitor’s Center. Plan ahead, as the Natural Area often experiences heavy visitation and wait time at the fee booth.

What to Wear & Bring

Dress for the weather; wear sturdy footwear, sunscreen and a hat. Bring at least TWO liters of water PER PERSON and a snack.

Requirements

Group size is limited to 20. No pets please. Minors must be accompanied by a legal guardian. To reduce human impact on the Natural Area, please follow the Leave No Trace principles of outdoor ethics.
