Unplug and recharge yourself by stepping into nature. Boost your creativity and feel happier and healthier after a hike with other nature-lovers. Search for native plants and insects and discover why it’s so important to restore and preserve our forests. Maybe you’ll meet some forestry friends, too! Students should wear comfortable shoes that can get dirty.

Students will need to be dropped off & picked up by a parent/guardian at Catalina Grove, which is just west of Harlem Avenue on the north side of 151st Street in Orland Park. Must have "Permission to Transport" indicated on Student Membership Application (check your Student Portal to make sure).

Important Attendance Policy:

Out of respect to our volunteers, please be sure you can attend the programs you sign up for. Confirmation calls or text messages are made 48-72 hours prior to every program. If you do not respond to our confirmation call within 24 hours of the program, a student on the waiting list will fill your spot. If a student is a "no show" for 2 or more programs, they will be automatically placed on the waiting list for other programs they have signed up for during that semester. 48 hours notice is required for all cancellations.
