  • SPECIAL ACTIVITIES FOR KIDS 8-12 YEARS OLD

    • The Junior Naturalist program is a nature-based day camp—hands on science and good muddy fun.

  • T’WEENS AND TEENS GET SPECIAL ATTENTION TOO

    • The Venture Out Series is a program of expeditions to different trails and ropes courses off mountain as well as rivers including the French Broad, the South Toe, the Nolichucky, the Wautauga and Laurel Creek

  • ADVENTURES FOR ALL AGES

    • Naturalists Walks are guided leisurely discovery walks on Mountain Air. During spring wildflower and fall foliage seasons we offer “Cart Tours” which are interpretive nature outings via golf cart. Like star-gazing? Using telescopes, binoculars and the naked eye, we take advantage of our mountain clear night skies to enjoy a guided tour of the constellations, meteor showers and in-depth moon workshops. Great Big Learning Adventures are Naturalist led outings such as white water rafting, quite water canoeing, Elk watching in the Cataloochee Valley, zip lining, rock climbing, stand up paddle boarding, or fly fishing on the Wautauga River.

  • SPECIAL TOPICS
    • Throughout the year Mountain Air Naturalists present special workshops and organize talks and exhibitions by guest speakers on local history, flora and fauna topics.
