Great Blue Herons are deep observers, fast movers, and are vital to their habitat. This five-class series will feature exploration of the sanctuary's many habitats as well as active games, engaging challenges, and a deeper examination of our local ecology.

Do you have what it takes to survive in the wild in winter? We will hike to the perfect survival spot, look to our local wildlife for inspiration, and spend each class on a different outdoor survival skill.
