Guided Hikes

Only have limited time and want to know more about what's overhead and underfoot in nature? Explore the Ozarks during a guided nature hike with naturalist/primitive skills instructor Bo Brown! See some of the Ozarks' unique geologic landforms, birding hotspots, and areas of botanical specialty. Design a trip to your choice of locations, or choose a nearby resource from the list below. Get an overview of natural and cultural history, or we can focus on individual subjects such as area birdlife, wildflowers, edible/medicinal plants, archaeology, geology, primitive outdoor skills and wilderness survival.
