In the middle of our age groups, Forest Guardians begin to build confidence in their risk-taking skills and practical problem solving while continuing to develop their sense of wonder and curiosity. They also engage in understanding the importance of environmental stewardship and what it means to preserve and conserve the natural world around us. This age group focuses their adventures on the slightly longer network of Discovery trails and even begin to explore areas in the subalpine such as Dinkey Peak, where they will encounter a new ecosystem and its many different characteristics.
