Guided Naturalist Walks

Guided Naturalist Walks

Schedule a guided hike with a Hoyt Naturalist for your youth group!

We host hands-on, exploratory field trips for youth groups of all ages. We can accommodate groups of between 20 and 60 students with chaperones. Please reserve at least three weeks in advance.

Guided hikes can be up to 90-minutes and are led by trained volunteer Arboretum Naturalists. Hikes focus on the diverse life cycles and evolutionary adaptations of trees that allow them to survive in environments from all around the world. Our living museum’s worldwide diversity of trees is uniquely poised to offer this lesson in the Portland Metro area.

Field trips cost $5/youth. Proceeds from the field trips help fund educational programs and maintaining the Arboretum’s trees and trails.

If you are ready to schedule your field trip, or if you have any additional questions, fill out the form below or contact Education Coordinator Emily Lytle.
