Nature Exploration & Learning
Candlelight Ranch offers the perfect natural setting coupled with creative hands-on programs to engage Ranchers in exploring the wonders of nature. From guided nature hikes through the canyon, to scavenger hunts and hands-on bug lessons, Ranchers are empowered to participate, notice the “little things,” and create respectful connections with nature.
Painting special rocks to line areas of our nature trails is just one of the creative things our Ranchers can do. The Ranch’s program director works with visiting groups to customize meaningful educational activities and fun projects to fit their needs.
Ranchers are encouraged to express themselves through guided and self-guided activities:
- Exploration and hiking
- Scavenger hunts
- Wildlife lessons
- Campfires and storytelling
- Natural history and science
- Arts & Crafts
It helps Ranchers:
- Connect with nature
- Learn about the environment
- Preserve and steward the land
- Learn about plants, wildlife and more
- Express themselves in meaningful ways
