Are you ready to step into all that nature has to offer? We’re ready too! Our new Treetop Classroom opening later this month will host daily activities including nature chats, performances, and storytelling. What makes this extra special is our very own Interpretation Manager Kelsey Van Voorst recently completed a workshop to make Treetop Outpost a certified Nature Explore Classroom. This means that we’ll be part of a network of schools and organization all working together to engage and connect children with nature. We are excited to think bigger-picture (see the forest through the trees) for our ever-growing connection to nature as we continue plans that engage guests with our wooded areas and the new White River Overlook.
Also, adding to our nature success was an outstanding attendance number for our Arbor Day event (46% increase in attendance), and for the first time we gave away all 1,500 of our free trees. It shows that our guests are excited about nature, and is the reason we are thrilled with our role as the market leader providing opportunities to be curious about the natural world.
