Embark on an educational adventure with our expert field naturalists while exploring the natural beauty of canyon country, touring and hiking the lands in and around Arches and Canyonlands National Parks and other nearby national treasures and /or floating on a remote and scenic section of the Colorado River near Moab.
Immerse yourself in the spectacular geology of the Canyon country with our geologist/naturalist guides. Examine the forces that shaped the regional landscape. Recognize the common rocks and minerals and how they relate to the environment in which they formed. See evidence of life forms from the past. Learn about the past and present mining activities of the area. Programs are conducted at a beginning through advanced level. All tours feature wildlife and animal track observation, identification of native wildflowers, and time for photography and quiet reflection.
We specialize in small groups and quality interactive educational
programs on natural resources, including desert, mountain and riparian
ecology, geology, wildlife, native plants and conservation issues. Small
group sizes on these trips provide for personal attention and an intimate
learning experience. Our leaders are long-time residents of Moab that
delight in sharing their knowledge and passion for the area.

|ALL-INCLUSIVE YEAR ROUND PACKAGES|
For independent travelers visiting Moab, who prefer a relaxed trip with fewer people and more options that a typical tour, we offer all-inclusive packages that feature comfortable accommodations, healthy meals and a combination of exciting day-time activities. Activities include a one-day river trip on the Colorado River, a day of guided mountain hiking (or snow-shoeing) and / or a day exploring the desert in around Arches and Canyonlands National Parks.
Arrive on the evening before the first day of activities and enjoy a hearty welcome dinner and evening program. Stay the night after the last day of activities so that you can have a fresh start to travel on to your next destination. Tours are tailored to your interests and can emphasize any of our specialties: geology, wildflowers and native flora, cultural history and cultural and environmental issues.
We are in the process of putting together a volunteer schedule. Please check back soon or give us a call.
