First Nature Tours offers an educational-focused tour package that is tailored to meet the unique needs and interests of school groups traveling to the Pacific Northwest. With a successful track record of leading educational tours, our team of expert tour guides is dedicated to refining the way we teach and engage with students.
Our team of tour guides is composed of specialists in natural history, sustainability, and climate science, who believe that we can do more for our guests and destinations through education and a focus on regenerative tourism. We bring more than just an adventure, we bring an immersive, educational experience from unforgettable destinations.
One of the focal points of our tour is PNW history. The Pacific Northwest has a rich history, from the indigenous groups that have been here for thousands of years to the first Europeans to make their way to the Pacific Ocean for trade and settlements. We connect nature to history for our students, while on a whitewater rafting adventure, we connect with the North American trade routes. Eating locally in Central Oregon can be connected to the impact of local agriculture and we’ll stop in historic towns along the way. We will provide cultural or historical information to enhance the experience.
Another important aspect of our tour is natural history. The Pacific Northwest is home to diverse wildlife and ecosystems that provide unique learning opportunities for students. Our team of naturalists will guide students through an immersive experience, exploring the flora and fauna of the region and understanding the natural history of the area.
We also provide students with the opportunity to learn about climate change and its impact on the region. The PNW is a poignant stage to discuss the local impacts of climate change. Through direct experience and educational immersion in areas that are being affected by human-caused climate change, students will witness the impacts first-hand and understand the finer details of the processes of how these effects came to be and what we can do to be part of the solution.
Finally, our tour is grounded in regenerative travel. We partner with local landowners and non-profit organizations to do on-the-ground sustainability work, providing students with the opportunity to engage in direct sustainability action. Through these teachable moments, we believe that education on these impacts is paramount to embody the role of stewardship through sustainability while visiting unforgettable destinations. We invite you to join us on an unforgettable journey of discovery and learning in the Pacific Northwest.
