Interpretive Programs and School Programs

red-shafted-flicker tarantula Our interpretive programs include wildflower walks, evening programs, special backcountry hikes, and our very well received program for 1st through 6th grades. Called "Coe Connections", the program is an introduction to the concept of the ecological connections among all the parts of our environment; from the fallen dead tree that is home to myriad insects and larger animals alike; to the standing trees that provide storage for the acorn woodpecker.
