Nature Classes & Field Trips

Field trips and nature classes

Explore the Outdoors with the Experts!

Our year-round nature classes and outings offer nature novices and experienced naturalists alike an array of opportunities to explore and learn about our area’s natural history. Our experienced naturalists lead small group classes and trips to parks and wild spaces throughout the DC-metro region — and beyond. Lectures are held at our Woodend Sanctuary. Field trips are reached by private vehicle or carpool.
