Teachers, Chaperones, & Parents: are expected to monitor student behavior during the visit. This includes modeling appropriate behavior such as staying on the trail, staying with the group, and not using personal cell phones or engaging in side conversations during a program.


Attire: Students and chaperones should dress for the weather with appropriate footwear (closed-toed) for walking on trails. Layers are recommended to regulate temperature.
