Education and Outreach at Red-tail

At Red-tail we believe connecting people to nature is a critical element of our mission. By increasing awareness of our natural heritage we will grow future generations who will protect what they learn love. Our preserved natural areas offer excellent places for people to experience nature and learn about wild things.

Join us at one of our hikes or events, contact us to arrange a speaker or visit for your group, or download materials to plan your own nature adventure. Check back frequently to our website for updated offerings and materials.
