Private Ladybug Walks for Groups

Back to Ladybug Walk Page

Want a more personalized Ladybug Walk experience?
Set up a private Ladybug Walk for a group of preschoolers!

Arrange a private Ladybug Walk for your group - great for preschool classes, day care groups, and birthday parties!

Our private Ladybug Walks give your group of children age 2-5 a chance to explore with our highly-trained, specialized Preschool Naturalists. Not only do our Preschool Naturalists know nature, they also know what makes young children tick! Children borrow our sought-after Ladybug Backpacks for their walk while they engage in nature exploration, learning, and play. Ladybug Walks last for 60 minutes and can be done at most Portland parks or natural areas. We’ll work with you to choose one that makes sense!

Current Rates for Ladybug Walks are as follows:

  • 1 Preschool Naturalist (1-14 students)..................$60
  • 2 Preschool Naturalists (15-25 students).............$120
