Set out on the trails, guided by one of our fun and knowledgable ONSC Teacher Naturalists. You will be immersed in a variety of natural science topics. Turn over logs, explore boulders, look for signs and sightings of our animal neighbors, and learn about Ozark mountain plants, trees and fungi. Hikes include opportunities for discovery, investigation and reflection that help hikers understand the natural world.
