Spring and Fall are peak times for school groups
Weekdays between 10am and 2pm
Volunteers generally lead tours once or twice a week
Lead elementary school age students through one of Holden’s forests and help them discover some of the many components that make up a forest or pond community.
Pick and choose the tours you lead. Tours include:
Sip from the fountain of youth as you help children experience the freshness of a forest first hand. Teach children about trees and the animals that find food and shelter in the forest.
Life on the Edge of a Pond
Our Education Department has whipped up a truly interactive and organic outdoor excursion. Life on the edge of a pond is sizzling with activity. Jump right in and help children as they use nets to search for tadpoles, snails and dragonfly nymphs.
Math is a tasty treat when enjoyed outdoors. Guides help students document our biggest trees during this hands-on program. Math concepts are baked into a true data-collecting situation.
Stories in the Garden
Fresh picked from nature each month, read stories illustrating the wonders of the natural world to spellbound young audiences. A craft or activity enhances the experience. Topics include: insects, fall color, furry animals, evergreens, snow and birds to name just a few.
This is better than s’mores cooked on an open fire! Relive your Girl or Boy Scout memories by lending a hand to our future generation working toward earning nature badges.
Volunteers show children the wonders of nature.
