  • Collect and release specimens in different habitats to compare their characteristics
  • Embark on an all-day hike exploring a unique mountain ecosystem
  • And more!

Adventures and discoveries continue in the evening during a night hike to learn about nocturnal adaptations, and friendships are formed during good old-fashioned campfire programs!

Registration will take place through a random draw lottery. The lottery sign up period will run July 17-October 31.
