Adventure trips

Every Friday we take our adventure van out to explore all there is to learn and do. Sometimes we immerse ourselves in nature. Sometimes we work alongside a local expert to explore their passion. We always look for hands-on experiences where we can get our hands dirty! 

This is also a great way for the community to participate in our programs — if you’re passionate about what you do, we’d love to come visit!
