Calling all outdoor, science and natural history enthusiasts! Come learn about becoming an Arboretum Nature Guide for elementary school children in our community. See if nature guiding is right for you. The goal of this program is to make the students’ classroom science education come alive out on the trails and reconnect them to the natural world. Orientation location: Wayne Morse Family Farm on Crest Dr. in Eugene. (Other trainings for those who decide to participate will be held at the Arboretum.) To RSVP or for more details, contact Jenny Laxton, Education Program Coordinator – 541-747-1504 or firstname.lastname@example.org
