Hiking the Hills

June 18 - 20, 2024

10 am to 3 pm

Age: Going into 6th - 8th grade

Cost: $50

Come discover the natural history of our own backyard! Join IMNH staff for a relaxing and informative hike in the hills! Participants will hike a different trail each day during this three day camp, exploring the geology, plants, and animals of our own Pocatello valley. Hikes will be from 10am until 3pm, and will cover forests, creeks, and grasslands of our local ecosystems. Participants should be physically able to hike at least 4 miles in a day. Lunches are not included, but learning and breaks are! All pick-up and drop-off will be at the local trailheads to avoid the congestion of the ongoing parking lot construction!

Registration is required, space is limited.
