Meet a Naturalist!

Ben 2014

You might be asking yourself, what exactly is a Naturalist? We like to say that a Naturalist is somebody who loves nature, loves learning about nature, and loves teaching others about nature. They can come in many different shapes and forms with all kinds of backgrounds, but every Walker Creek Ranch Naturalist loves being in nature, and most of all, being in nature with kids. Some of our Naturalists have college degrees in Environmental Science. Others might have a background in education or psychology. The Naturalists all have their own unique approach to teaching about and helping kids connect to the natural world; but what they all have in common is that they love what they do! No matter who your naturalist is, you will have an unforgettable experience learning about the environment, yourself, and how you can help be a positive influence on the natural world and within your community.
