Mighty Oaks from Little Acorns Grow: Help us keep offering this free program for kids to grow into mighty protectors of our earth!  See more

THE STORY:

The longest journey begins with the first step. And sometimes that’s a baby step. But oh, if we could teach our babies to step lightly on Mother Earth. Think of the future land stewards we would have! Protecting the earth for everyone. For their own children.

The Friends are trying to take the first step with local children of the Coachella Valley. We offer a program every third Saturday of the month in the National Monument for 8-14 year-olds. They get to be detectives, explorers, geologists and historians – all in one day— as they learn to become a Junior Trail Guide. In a fun, but educational format.
Kids get to explore the Monument and lean about the cultural resources, geology and wildlife habitats of the desert and how to protect them for the children of the future.

When the participants complete the course they get a cool shirt and patches and a book about the Monument. And exercise. And knowledge that will last a lifetime.

Help us keep offering this free program for kids to get in touch with nature.
