Take Me to the River Field Trip (TMTTR)

In October, volunteers are needed to help park rangers engage 4th grade students in an orienteering scavenger hunt, fire building activity, and/or shelter building activity and help with set up, take-down, and transitions between stations. This opportunity requires quite a bit of walking and student engagement (park rangers will lead all stations). These activities build a foundation for outdoor camping skills, something many of us learned when we were young and still use today. You can be a part of this learning for young students, sign up below!

Training for New TMTTR Volunteers: 10/2/2019

All new TMTTR Volunteers will need to attend this training to sign up for other shifts. Returning volunteers can join as a refresher.

Fire/Hike Station

Volunteers will guide small groups of students to build a fire with provided materials, focusing on student engagement, behavior, and safety.


Orienteering Station

Volunteers will teach students how to use a compass, read the guided hike directions to the group, and facilitate navigation to predetermined locations in the park.

Shelter Building Station

Volunteers will help support and advise small groups of students while they build a shelter in the woods using found natural materials.
