CHILDREN:  Participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.  Unless otherwise noted, all programs are open to those ages 5 and up.  The naturalists have their own children under five, and know from experience that though they are lots of fun and love the outdoors, they are also much better accommodated by small groups and special attention.  Our family programs are open to up to 30 people, a size that makes it hard to accommodate the young child.  Nature Babies is specially designed to meet the needs of children ages 1-6 years.

PETS:  We love pets, but they can be distracting in group situations.  They may limit how much you are able to participate in our scheduled program activities, and can impact other participants with allergies.  Some sites do not allow dogs, and most sites require dogs to be on leash. Please let us know if you are considering bringing a dog or other pet so that we can advise you as to how well the particular program will accommodate your companion.  Official companion animals for those with seeing, hearing, physical, or other disabilities are always welcome.

FLASHLIGHTS:  Flashlights are just too much fun! Feel free to bring a light with you, but please do not plan to use them during our night walks.  We will spend the first 45 minutes of each night walk developing our night vision, and it takes less than a second for that process to be ruined by an artificial light.  Our naturalists will carry flashlights in case of an emergency.  If you choose to bring a light, the naturalist may guide you when it is appropriate to use it.

SPECIAL CONCERNS:  Please let us know upon registration or at the beginning of the walk if you have any special needs or concerns.

TIME AND DURATION:  We strive to be timely, but our walks do not always end at the specified time.  We get caught up in the moment and the experiences surrounding us.  Please let us know before the walk begins if you will need to leave early, or have a pressing time constraint.
