This unique three-week riverside educational program gets kids outside into nature and inspires them to be the next generation of conservationists. Our volunteer guides use nature as the classroom – for many children, this is their first experience hiking through a forest and along a river. We provide on-site training and orientation. Volunteers guide small groups of 4th graders through activities that explore the woods and river through hands-on experiences. Haw River Assembly brings the infrastructure to create a campsite for volunteers and activities for the students who come for day-long field trips. Free time for volunteers can be spent taking kayak trips on the river, hiking in the forest, and enjoying shared community time outdoors. This exceptional program has earned much acclaim since its beginning in 1990 and is thought of by many students and teachers to be the BEST FIELD TRIP EVER.*

Volunteer Registration is now available for the 2019 Learning Celebration!
