Ecosystem Explorers


Local Nature Walks for Kids Guided By George Fox University Biology Students

Have you ever wondered why there are so many different kinds of flowers, why bugs swarm at dawn and dusk, why some trees in a forest have leaves and others have needles, or why deer have such big ears? Join the Science Outreach Program for a monthly nature walk to answer these questions and more as we explore ecosystems in our local parks, trails, and natural areas. Ecosystem Explorers walks emphasize outdoor exploration, inquiry, and observation and introduce kids to the ecology all around us.

Walks are most suitable for children ages 2 to 8, although babies and older children are welcome. Parents/guardians should plan to remain with their children for the duration of the walk, which will last no longer than one hour.
