WCC  naturalists can help you make your next field trip educational and fun! Each field trip is custom made and can take place at the Annett Nature Center or at any of our other county parks. Half or full day experiences may be planned. The typical day will include several rotations (number dependent on group size). Naturalists will lead one rotation and the others can be lead by teachers or parents. Program outlines and materials will be provided. Contact Karen at karenjohlas-szalkowski@warrenccb.org or call (515) 961-6169 to schedule a field trip with us.
