Matt Sheldon from The Cóyotl Group will go over multi nature based skills while leading the hike that will include basic plant identification, tracking (animals, humans, and weather), and basic movement and awareness for being in the mountains. If time and group size allows Matt will also lead a game integrating the skills learned on the hike.
This kid-friendly outing will begin at the Teton Canyon winter trailhead parking lot by the first cattle guard. We will wrangle up the kids and lead them on an outdoor adventure up the Sheep Bridge Trail.
After venturing across the bridge over Teton Creek we will pause for a moment to observe the newly rerouted bog bridge section of trail. TVTAP’s Volunteer Trail Work Day #1 will have completed this reroute only days prior to the kids outing.
From here we will venture East up the trail as it parallels Teton Creek towards it terminus at Edington Creek. After an hour of exploring the group will turn around and make their way back to the trailhead.
