Imagine watching the lights of Los Angeles fade and the stars appear or walking down the trail learning something new about the natural environment, including native plants that you can use in your own garden! Join TreePeople educators for a variety of guided activities that are fun, informative and designed for the whole family. Depending on the time of year, a variety of options are available.
Get your family and friends out of the house and onto the trails for a special tour at TreePeople’s Coldwater Canyon Park!
TreePeople is offering Eco-Tours that include a guided one-hour adventure and an optional nature craft activity. We’ll walk along the trails and visit the Dirt Doctor’s laboratory to learn about the magic of mulch, tour the urban watershed garden for a live demonstration of how rainwater flows through our environment, enjoy learning about California’s many native plants, and plant a tree seed to take home. For an added fee, you can include a nature craft activity.
For the morning tour, bring your lunch to picnic afterwards in our beautiful park. For the afternoon tour, bring your lunch to picnic beforehand.
Our beloved Eco-Tours are back at our beautiful Coldwater Canyon Park!
The three age/grade-appropriate tours offer synchronous learning at its best and connect with NGSS concepts. With the use of storytelling, songs, riddles, movement and more. Our tours are educational, interactive and fun!

This 1-hour presentation is engaging, educational, fun, and connects with NGSS concepts.
