Self-Guided Programs

Teachers or group leaders may take groups out on the trails for self-guided walks. There is a written trail guide for Kanyoo Nature Trail (pdf). The refuge has two other trails Onondaga (2.5 miles) and Swallow Hollow (1.3 miles). Groups may also design activities to correspond to their course of study and use the refuge as an outdoor laboratory. A written description of all activities planned must be sent to and approved by the refuge manager before the visit can be confirmed. This is to insure that the activities do not conflict with the refuge mission or refuge regulations. Refuge staff will work with the teacher/group leader to select the best locations for the group activities.
