Trailhead Tours

What is it?

Trailhead Tours are lightly guided, volunteer-led offerings for both the Natural and Human History galleries. Teachers can pick a floor to explore and pick from one of three themes. Volunteers guide the beginning of the tour and allow time for classes to make their own connections. Volunteers also facilitate a group discussion at the end of the tour. The tours are hands-on and designed with flexibility to allow teachers to add in their own ideas.
