Event description

Description

Calling all 2nd through 4th graders eager to learn!

Join Friends of Government Canyon volunteers to learn about various nature-based topics and earn Scholar Badges. Junior Earth Scholars is a monthly program which will run from September until May. The program will build on itself with a different topic each month. Participants are encouraged, but not required, to attend all classes in the series.

Who is Invited

Children in school grades 2 - 4; minors must be accompanied by a legal guardian. Adults attending with registered children may bring unregistered siblings. We ask that adults plan to bring quiet activities for unregistered children so that our participants are not distracted.

Registration & Fees

Registration required for EACH participant. PLEASE!!! Adults attending with their children should NOT register. Sorry, no group registrations. All Natural Area entry fees apply.

When & Where to Meet

Arrive by 9:15 am. Meet in 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

Note that the Exhibit Gallery is covered, but open-air. Please dress appropriately for the weather and wear sturdy shoes. Bring water and a snack if you like.

Requirements

Group size is limited to 20. Reservations required and will be accepted through noon Friday, October 5, 2018. No pets please. To reduce human impact on the Natural Area, please follow the Leave No Trace principles of outdoor ethics.

Cancellations

In the event of inclement weather, this program is subject to cancellation. Check trail conditions by calling GCSNA’s main office at 210-688-9055after 7:30AM, going to the GCSNA twitter feed or the Friends of Government Canyon Facebook page .
