Junior Naturalists

Give your middle schooler the summer of a lifetime! Instructors challenge your naturalists to use their observation skills and individual experiences as each discovers how plants, sustainability, and local ecosystems are part of their everyday life. Using critical thinking and team collaboration, budding ecologists will learn to hunt edible wild weeds, identify local birds and mammals, trap insects and freshwater macroinvertebrates, and so much more! The session concludes with our annual overnight campout at QBG!
