Monthly Homeschool Program


We offer a monthly outdoor science based field study program for all homeschool groups and students at the Galena Creek Visitor Center!

Where: Galena Creek Visitor Center, up Mt. Rose Highway

Cost:    $5.50 per child (includes small convenience fee), Grades K-12 (Ideal for ages 10 and under) Parents are free. If possible, students will be divided into two groups: Grades K-5 and Grades 6-12. 

Bring walking/hiking shoes and bottled water, sunblock, brimmed hat, sunglasses and a snack or lunch for after :-)

Don't bother with a stroller. Not even an off-road model. It's not a difficult hike, but there is not a flat path. It's fun and great exercise.
